3.78/5 rDev -7.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
The appearance is a burgundy colored body with a thin head and some decent lacing
Booze soaked fruits, citrus/pine hop oils and a bit of sweet malt backing make up the bulk of the nose.
THe taste is very hop forward(as to be expected from Lagunitas) the malt however is no slouch and offers up a very sweet backdrop.
THe feel is a tan thin IMHO. This beer could also benefit from a bit more carbonation.
OVerall this was a decent American BW, but I have had better, worth a shot though.

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
