On tap at River Brew poured into a snifter. The waitress tried to pass this off as a DIPA so I'm not sure how long it has been kegged.

Dark amber with some orange highlights and a fine tan head.

Nose has everything you would expect from an American Barleywine. A heavy hand of strong citrusy hops backed up with caramel malts. Some candied fruits come through and there is a granny smith ester that bites. Clean yeast character and there is some tobacco, tea and vanilla that comes through in the finish.

A fine example of an American Barleywine. The bitterness was there all along and a great malt bill without too much cloyingly sweet caramel malts makes this very drinkable.

2011 Release

Pours very dark reddish brown with a finger of head. Head leaves large bubbles around glass and some lacing.

Malty in the nose with a rich sweetness. Simcoe-like citrus, overly ripe fruit, light booze.

More deep rich maltiness, i assume due to age, really delicious, mild chocolate, more dark candied fruit, just enough hops, really mellow for 9.3%

Big body, mellow carbonation.

This is one totally rad BW

Poured from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass. I’ve had this bottle stored for about 2-3 years.

A: The beer is a deep reddish brown color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains bourbon, caramelized malts, brown sugar, some chocolate and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel, brown sugar, chocolate and bourbon. Then a hearty malt character comes in along with a slight alcohol sting. The hops presence is strong but not over-powering and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to sip on for a long time.

Oh the Flying Mouflan...I've had this one so many times over the years in just about every format it comes in. Definitely a beer I enjoy and I'm glad to finally get around to doing a review for it. Growler purchased at Cable Beverage.

Appearance: Pours an attractive red tinged caramel with a 2 finger light khaki crown that displays some retention and nice lace.

Smell: Caramel malt, an english yeast like fruitiness and some nice noble hop type spiciness.

Taste: Same as the nose but more pungent and with some additional citrus hops. The malt profile is just fantastic on this one. Lots of red fruits covered in burnt sugar, toffee, and caramel. Decently stiff hop bittering and a whisper of alcohol presence.

Mouthfeel: Thick side of medium bodied with nice carbonation.

Overall: A well constructed and tasty barley wine that I always look forward to drinking!

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip.

Pours a beautiful, deep mahogany with a tan head which dissipates fairly quickly but leaves some nice lacing.

Smells complex, there's a lot going on here. Fresh hop aroma blends well with sugar cane, slight chocolate, alcohol, and a touch of dark fruit.

Grapefruit, piney, and slightly minty hops lead off the flavor and are balanced out with malt undertones of milk chocolate with sugar cane. The hop bitterness reasserts itself in the finish, blending with flavors of dark fruit. Despite the high abv, the alcohol blends in very well.

Full bodied and a bit chewy, seductively smooth and syrupy from the alcohol.

Overall: Complex, innovative, and very enjoyable. The Troegs brothers have done well again.
