2002 version. Medium amber color. Medium head. Aroma is malts and nuts. A full bodied Barley wine. Malts are nutty and sweet, Hops are slightly bitter and somewhat citrusy. Well balanced. Very smooth. Body is very full and thick. Kind of chewy. Finishes very well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is slightly dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet
Serving type: bottle

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
