Notes: Grand Reserve should be saved and shared. Brewed only once per year, our Barleywine Ale is characterized by an intensely complex malt, hop, and fermentation profile.

2017 vintage, 750 mL bottle. Pours a muddy copper-brown with nice carbonation that dissipates relatively quickly. Viscous. Appealing malts, sorghum, and floral hops on the nose. Raw sugar cane, hop bitterness, citrus oils and toast on the palate. Moderately thin body, and somewhat dry.

Vertical Flight 2013 - 2015 at The Avenue Pub Nov. 21. 2013 from bottle, 2014 and 2015 on tap.

Appearance: 2013 is noticeably darker. 2015 has the most head and clings to the side of the glass.

Taste: 2013 is the sweetest of the three. 2015 has a dry hoppy finish.

Mouthfeel: full bodied, 2013 has a thick chewy feel to it.

Overall: Really enjoyed the flight for the chance to experience the effect of aging on barleywine. The 2013 was my fave, it had a full, deep flavor that I really liked.
