3.5/5 rDev -9.1%
Runner up in a four way blind barley wine taste.
Pours a light tan.
Smell is a bit mild, more malty and a bit of fruit. Not very carbonated.
Spicy character. Mellow and almost sour hoppy.
Pretty good beer, especially for the price. Worth getting a few to age and for 3.99 a bottle, not a bad go to option.

Old Boardhead is a big, sweet, and slightly hoppy barleywine available for dirt cheap. If those words resonate with you, jump on this beer. It won't blow you away, but it's inexpensive, boozy, and tasty. Sometimes, that just hits the mark. It's almost the malt liquor of the craft beer world.

02-09-11- 22 oz bottle, 2008, served in a snifter glass. Pours a hazy, red-orange color with a decent, frothy off-white head, lacing throughout. Aroma is sweet, toasted malt, vinous, pine hops, and alcohol. Flavor is sweet malts, resinous, wood, spicy, and alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium, syrupy, almost cloyingly sweet, but balanced with a large amount of bitterness. Overall a decent beer.
Edit: Review of same beer on 21 Nov 12. Similar aroma, much more of a dark fruit/raisin aroma and a bit oxidized, no hops at all in the smell. Flavor isn't as sweet, still wood and spicy, much less of an alcohol bite, Mouthfeel not syrupy or sweet as before. This one aged into a solid barleywine.
