First had: on tap at the brewpub in Tampa
Poured a slightly hazed copper color, with a small white head that sank to a ringlet, and left dabs of soapy lacing on the glass. Sweet malts in the nose, light fruit esters, somewhat floral/herbal hops. Didn't really taste like a barleywine at all. There was a medicinal/phenolic quality to it that is present in some barleywines, but it was more an off-taste here. Flavors of toasted grains, ripe fruits, distant herbal hop bitterness...and spiked with vodka. Seriously, it tasted to me like they got the high ABV in this by spiking an off-flavored pale ale with vodka or moonshine. Body was light-medium, thin for the style it was supposed to be. Not very good, and not very exemplary of any style of barleywine. I think "boilermaker" might be more suiting.
Serving type: on-tap
