Waited for 30 minutes to get a mug of this at the 2003 Holiday Ale Festival. Despite the plastic mug, it erupted a wonderful malt sweetness and fruity yeast reminiscent of other Tuck's brews. The plastic mug hides the opacity of the beer, but a nice deep brown color with a redness to the head. The taste also brings the full malt backing, yet it isn't too much, and is still easy to drink. The yeast gives an almost too fruity flavor for the ale. Still, its very drinkable, which is good because it was the only beer I was willing to wait in line for that night.

Serving type: on-tap

Sampled at the 2003 Holiday Ale Festival in Portland, OR. A serious barleywine in the malts and alcohol department if not as assertively hoppy as other West Coast barleywines. It had been aged a year though, so there was ample time for the hops to subside. Tuck's is a really good (draft-only) brewery and it's still a bit off the radar. Malts are big, bready, biscuity with some elements of chocolate. The alcohol was certainly present in the nose, but in the mouth it was deceptively absent. Mouthfeel was surprisingly thin for this kind of beer. In the end I have to say it was too cloying to really enjoy a lot of; my 4 oz sample was enough. Not that those 4 oz weren't flavorful and enjoyable, though.
