A- Clear ruby tinted amber with sdark tan head that dissipates and leaves a beautiful full lace.
A- Sweet malt dominates. Slight floral hoppy aroma as well.
T- Delicious sweet malt flavor. Moderately bittered from hops, not as intense as Stone's Old Guardian. There is also a very faint taste of roasted malt.
M- Definite alcohol warming. Full bodied, low almost non-existent carbonation. Coats the mouth.
D- Much more drinkable than I expected. However it is much more sweet than it is hopped. An enjoyable brew 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
