Screw top bottle with a painted label that actually fell apart in me hands. Looks like the paint fell apart. Anywho: Kettle hops: Chinook, Aroma Hops: Willamette, Dry Hops: Amarillo, Centennial.
Fills a glass with an ominous dim ruby aspect topped with a pillowy fluffy antique white dense cap leaving some residual gooey drippy lace in the glass.
Nose offers up a brilliant fruit cornicopia of dates, figs, dried apple and a plethora of deep sugary tones like cherry cola, pineapple, caramel and spice wafer.
First swigs: Delectible (5/5 worthy?) vertual candy of caramel sweet thick viscous deep maple syrupy waffle, candy apple, figs, raisins, WOW! This is a pizza with the works!
Thick full bodied beauty here with a lot to offer. Sticky linger of copious sugar residue.
Last swigs: Brilliant Barley Wine that reminds me of a cross between two gems: Old FogHorn and BigFoot. More of BigFoot than Old FogHorn but two barley wines that wrote the book. Top notch BarleyWine!!!!
Beer is good. Happy big barley beering.
Serving type: bottle

This is good stuff. Cool color - HTML #43104 or so, transparency 95.
Minute foam that follows the beer to the bottom of the glass.
I eat barley in soup sometimes and I like it. I drink barley in beer sometimes and like it and this is one of the best beers with barley in it so far. So I really like it. You should get some.
This is strong but doesn't taste strong. Get a girl two glasses and she'll like you afterwards.
Serving type: on-tap
