2011 Vintage

A- Brownish-amber with some transparency, just a hint of yeasty haze. No head to speak of, with just a few off-white bubbles on top of the body.

S- Sweet caramel malts, hints of dark fruits, slight nuttiness.

T- Really similar to the aroma, sweet malts up front with a blast of more sweetness, lots of caramel and dark fruit flavors, grainy bread. Any hops that may have been present have faded and this is a big sweet barleywine.

M- Big and sweet, but smooth enough for easy sipping. Low carbonation.

O- I feel like the aging made this one better, but it is certainly a big, sweet barleywine. The depth of the flavor is pretty good and worth a try.

3.96/5  rDev +2.9%

A: Pours a dark amber hue with an off white head
S: Table grapes, juicy bubblegum, fresh mossy bark, burnt pineapple
T: Sharp red plum flavors, sweet malty notes, more bubblegum notes
M: Heavy mouthfeel (though not as heavy as a porter or stout), filled about 70% of the mouth
O: Big flavors, powerful brew, very drinkable, could put you under the table if you're not paying attention.
