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.
