Sessionable Barleywine

This seven malt red ale is filled with complexity; expect hints of nuts, burnt sugar, raisin and a slight touch of smoke.

Poured from a capped 750 mL bottle into a small goblet. Moderate hand. Dated 2013.

A: Hazy, iced tea-brown body with 1 finger of off-white head. Good retention. Light lacing.

S: Sweet malt with notes of brown sugar and molasses. Touch of chocolate. Slight dark fruit, dates. Orange-forward hop notes.

T: Maltiness opens with a light rye-type spiciness. The hops gradually build to a relatively dry, moderately hopped finish. The flavors are quantitatively light for a barley wine, as is the alcohol presence.

M: Moderate carbonation with a light to medium body. Certainly less substantial than average for the style, but relatively easy drinking.

O: I’d say “sessionable barley wine” is a fairly accurate description. Potency of flavor and complexity are lowered, but accompanied by equitable gains in drinkability. Enjoyable, overall.

Prost!
