Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: John_M on 03-18-2007

Alaskan Barley Wine is a full bodied ale, deep mahogany in color and brewed with an array of complementing malts to achieve its high original gravity. Multiple hop additions in the boil and dry hopping during fermentation provide contrast to the big malt character resulting in the smooth balance that distinguishes this specialty brew. Like many fine wines, Alaskan Barley Wine may be aged in the bottle and gains deeper malt complexity and smoothness over time.

2008 and 2013 side by side 11/16/14

2008 - deep mahogany color with an incredible sweet molasses nose with nice slightly bitter maltiness. an incredibly smooth barleywine with some brown sugar/molasses flavor and dark malt flavor. absolutely incredible after 6 years

2013 - very similar to 2008 but with some risidual hop bitterness and a slightly less refined flavor. still incredible and delicious but slightly less so than the aged bottle
