12oz pour from tap at fatheads Pittsburgh. Cloudy amber color with small white/off white head. Lots of lace.
Smells of piney hops with small amounts of malt. Boozy taste with some pine and citrus in the back end.

Pours a copper Amber color. Has an aroma of hops and caramel malts. Flavor is boozy, bitter and hops with a malty backbone. Overall this isn't too bad but nothing special.

On tap at Fatheads N.Olmsted.

Pours an amber color with a dense off white head. The head holds on nicely for such a strong beer.

Smell is somewhat week. Hops, caramel and a touch of pine.

Smells of pine, booze soaked fruit and a bit of orange zest.

Wow-this is a hoppy Barleywine. Malts are there but in the background. Tons of hop oil, supporting malt and a touch of pine. Reminds me of a less sweet fresh Bigfoot. Long bitter, dry finish. Flavors open as the beer warms. Alcohol is well hidden. VERY dangerous.

Creamy mouthfeel. Drinks easy with low carbonation.

Another winner from Fat Heads. Boy this beer could get you into trouble fast. Highly recommended for those who like hoppy Barleywines.

Pours a deep copper color with a white head and plenty of lace. Aroma is big on malts and has a tropical hop element. Well balanced and hoppy for a Barleywine, this I could drink all day until it got the best of me. Just a hint of alcohol given the strength quite an achievement. Overall, yet another world class brew from Fat Heads.
