Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Oak Aged Barleywine has a deep copper color and an intense malt flavor balanced by assertive hops. Fermentation with American ale yeast allows the caramel malt to shine. We age the beer on new, medium toast Missouri Oak to enhance its complexity and to develop its smooth, luscious character.

Barleywine is a classic English-style hearty ale. The term refers to a beer with the potency of wine and is often vintage-dated.

This beer will continue to age well in a cool dark place for several years, but it is ready to enjoy now.

Poured into a clean tulip glass

A: Dark golden brown plenty of carbonation and three fingers width of head.

S: Spicy and oaky with rich caramel malt.

T: A really good spicy bite, with a sweet caramel taste.

M: slightly thick but still smooth and slightly creamy.

O: Very good beer. Because of the spiciness and its thickness it would be better to drink it in cooler weather but still very good

3.66/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750ml of the 2012 bottling opened up by Doug. Poured into a GLBC snifter today, 5/1/2014.

A- Typical barleywine. Caramel brown body, half finger white head with little retention, no lacing. Very placid.

S- smells like tapioca balls. Very toffee and butterscotch forward (in a good, non-contaminated way). Pretty mellow, no indication of big citrus hops as you'd expect from an American-made barleywine.

F- Kind of boring. Sweet, caramel and toffee forward barleywine without much balancing character to it. It's not bad, but it's fairly boring.

M- Medium to thin bodied, lower carbonation, quite on the sweet, slick and sticky end of the spectrum.

O- Not my favorite style and this is one of the lesser ones in the style. Give me Great or The K13 anytime... well that's not fair to Schlafly so I'll just say that I will skip over this if I ever see this again.
