22oz bottle with "Two - Aught - 11" on the front. Pours a reddish chestnut color with a very thin head. Nice lacing. Aroma is malty and boozey. Some caramel and bready aromas as well. Taste is what I expected. Warming alcohol with maltiness. A little bit of sweetness to it. Piney hops also present. Relatively easy to drink for the style. Pretty decent barleywine but I'd really like to try it with some age on it. Worth picking up again.

4.13/5 rDev +1.2%

2011 keg. 32oz growler fill from Green's PG, poured into a Conquest snifter.
A: Pours a slightly hazy, rich auburn body, with a half-inch of beige head. The head dissipates to just a ring, but laces through the life of the beer.
S: Caramel, and a lot of pine. Way more pine than I would have expected for a 3-4 year old beer.
T: The hops are not as bitter as might be expected from a fresh American barleywine, but they still take center stage here. Lots of pine, then caramel, followed by a little dark fruit mingling with pine again in the finish.
M: Big, lush, without being syrupy.
O: This is a really good, still hoppy barleywine after all these years. It reminds me of how Old Ruffian ages--very well.
Serving type: growler
