Notes / Commercial Description:
Old Jackalope Barleywine Style Ale: Whats sealed in this bottle is only heard of in myths. Its so rare in fact, we have used a magical seal that only opens with an "Abracadabra," or the bottle opener hanging from your keys. This rich and complex ale uses a variety of malts and hops to balance what we think is one ultimate beer. Share it with friends, savor it with colleagues, or stash it away for a future occasion. This ale will keep for months, or years if you manage to resist the temptation.

I really try to shy away from fresh barleywines, they are sometime hot and unrefined; however, give me an aged barleywine life is great. The server urged me to try the barleywine, told me that it is different than most barleywines. Begrudgingly, I ordered the barleywine. The beer is a medium amber color with orange copper hues. The head is one finger off white and a typical fast dissipating head from the high alcohol. Little carbonation is visible from the sides of the glass.
Toasted malt, caramel, citrus, toffee, floral hops, grapefruit, bready, touch of pine, and yeasty.
Heavy toasted malt, caramel, citrus, toffee, floral, pine, alcohol, biscuits, crackers, grapefruit, herbal, grass, and some yeasty notes
Full body, alcohol warming a touch hot, medium carbonation, some astringency, and a full finish.
A solid well-built beer it is more of American Strong Ale. The beer needed a bigger malt structure, to me it was not what I would expect as a barleywine. The server was right it was different than most barleywines.
