Served in a tumbler at the brewpub.
You want a barrel-aged barleywine from the Chicagoland area that won't be held hostage by asshat traders? Look no further: This stuff pours a lightly-hazy amber-garnet topped by a finger of sandy khaki foam. The nose comprises molasses, light vanilla bean, caramel, and light dark fruits. For the specific style, the smell is somewhat unassuming, but it's pretty appealing. The taste holds notes of sweet toffee, oak, light booze, grapefruit rind, and light pine resin. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a lightly drying finish. Overall, a very nice b-wine, though I feel either a bit more time on the oak or a touch less hopping would have ensured that the hops and the barrel don't compete with each other to be allowed to complement the tasty base. Still, not bad at all.
Serving type: on-tap
