Finally got around to adding this brew, Olde Bastard, which comes and goes seemingly at whim at the Hunter Gatherer. It's called a barleywine but is an old ale in my book, and I listed it as such. An odd brew, but worth trying.

A. Dirty, muddy-red with an everlasting 2 - 3cm slightly sticky head. Unfiltered and rough-hewn looking.

S. Interesting blend of roast malt, cocoa, sweet dark sugars, grapefruit-citrus hops that are pungent and forward, medium booze and clean, good, young smelling old ale.

T. Tastes like a 60 / 40 blend of roasty American stout and a West Coast IPA. Strong citrusy hops hold their own against a sweet, semi-thick choco-roasted malt profile. Overall sweet and with a decent hop bite. Odd, and tasty.

M. Mid-full, smooth after an initial carbonation crack. Filling and relatively easy for the ABV.

D. Not bad, I had a pint and a half with dinner. This is one of the better offerings from HG, as it breaks the mold somewhat and, at 7.5%, is bolder than the usual fare. A little rough, and slightly vague, but a good beer and a recommended beer if you find yourself in Columbia's only brewpub.

Not quite a barleywine in its most recent incarnation, but still a nice, darker, maltier ale from HG. Something akin to an Arrogant Bastard, but the balance here lies in the dark, red maltiness.
