Style: American Barleywine

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Avast! This version of Old Numbskull, our classic American Barleywine Ale, is matured in premium rum barrels for an extended period of time to develop its rich and intense flavor profile. The result is an amazingly complex beer that balances the caramel and toasted malt character with notes of woody spice and sweet molasses from the barrel aging process.

On tap at AleSmith Brewing Company in San Diego, CA.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, caramel, toffee, wood, spices, and rum. Taste is much the same with a woody spice flavor and an alcohol kick on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a fantastic smell and some great flavors.
