On tap at Toronado for Beachwood night. 

A: It's hard to see color in this lighting, but the body appears dark brown. The head is a finger of beige foam.

S: Pine and a dash of citrus. Caramel blends with toffee and earth. The nose is quite hoppy.

T: Caramel accompanies a dark toffee note. Pine is evident and there's an upper moderate bitterness. Alcohol is present but not harsh. 

M: Upper medium body with medium carbonation.

Overall: A good American Barleywine. This would be a good one to barrel age *hint*.

On-tap at Beachwood Brewing

Pours an almost perfect copper color with a frothy off-white head. A pleasant toasted malt aroma and a strong pine and resin hop character. There is also some grapefruit peel and lots of toffee and caramel. The flavor has an almost woody flavor initially from the intense pine hop character. Lots of toasted malt as well as caramel, toffee, and a touch of brown sugar. There is a pleasant fruitiness that comes through as the beer warms up. Full bodied with medium carbonation.

Great job on this one Julian. Smoother than I anticipated.

On-tap at Beachwood I,

A: Pours a medium to dark amber with a creamy long-lasting white head, some thick lace make for a nice looking beer.

S: Heavy crystal type malt, some greenery, weeds, hint of citrus.

T: Not the hop bomb I expected going in, this is much more like Old Numbskull than Old Crustacean or Bigfoot. Lots of rich malt, citrusy hops with a hint of tropicality. Nothing mind-blowing, but good stuff here.

M: Full-bodied, rich, crisp carbonation, does have a smoothness about it, just a slight hint of alcohol, never hot.

O: A nice solid American barleywine, good thing to release this in end of January/February. Kyle said that this begs to be in barrel, and I agree, lets see what Julian does.
