Huge thanks to whartontallboy for throwing this in as an extra in a great trade.
Pours a ruddy (slightly muddy) reddish dark brown with a 1/4 of off white head on top. The head quickly fades to the edges of the glass but remains till finished. Looks good and smells pretty good as well. A sweet mix of hops, mixed with sweet malted barley, brown sugar and some faint spices. Taste is similar with the hops more prominent but well balanced with sweetness and a slight bitterness at the end. There is some slight oxidation - seems that it might have been aged some or might just be the brewers intent. Didn’t see if there was any date on the bottle to indicate freshness.
This is a really well balanced American Barleywine and tastes similar to Alesmith Old Numbskull. There’s slight carbonation but that would be the one ding to the beer - it’s almost a bit too faint. The viscosity is medium and mouth filling.
Overall a nicely done barleywine - good flavor and well balanced. I usually prefer these type of beers with a bit more fresh hop flavors (still balanced) but this was quite enjoyable.
