Nice, brownish look with a tan head and lacing galore. Swirling in the glass shows this one has plenty of legs and body.
Smell was thick with sugars, residuals are going to take it here. Very sweet and malty, almost candylike. Mixing in with some hops but not dominating.
Taste was huge with an onslaught of sweetmalts and a pungent hopppiness.
Whats not to love here?

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
