This is a real nice barleywine. Good balance. Nice sweet tones with just a touch of noticeable malt presence. The only drawback is a bit of a burn of alcohol. But it really isn't that much. Too often barleywines just aren't there, but this one is nice. I'd go for this any day.

Thanks Mrbubbler!

Appearance. Pours a hazy rust colour with a finger of thick, light orangy-tan head.

Smell. Piney hops and sweet citrus juices, some caramel and toasted grains.

Taste. Sweet toffee, candied orange rinds, sweet concentrated grapefruit juice, a bit of pine and wood, some well-roasted light grains.

Mouthfeel. Full body, slightly sticky but it works with this beer. Medium-low carbonation.

Overall. One of the better barleywines I've tried. Hoppy, sweet and quite enjoyable.

Ba Review #208
Served On: 08/11/2012

I paired this one with some bbq beef brisket and Cajon coleslaw at the new Tröegs brewery in Hershey. They have a ‘snack bar’ in the taproom, but trust me – it offers way more than your typical snack bar.

Look: Arrived with a thin tannish head. Color was a dark cloudy bronze. Carbonation bubbles powered through the thick body. Lacing was impressive given the high ABV.

Smell: Rather smooth aroma of toffee and candied apple. A hop bouquet suggested an aggressive hop profile. The obvious alcohol warmth became noticeable about the second or third inhale.

Taste: First off were heavy notes of toffee and floral hops. The dank body definitely made this one a sipper. The middle had a quick citrus bitterness that mixed with some winter fruits and an interesting molasses to offer a well crafted balance. The finish was a lingering brown sugar with bitterness returning with some dryness.

This was an amazing Barley Wine and probably surpasses SN Bigfoot by a small margin. Paring the beer with the brisket was probably one element that added to the enjoyable experience. I snagged a 22oz bomber for my cellar.
