Our strongest ale annually. Pale, Munich, Pilsner, and Vienna malted barleys give required maltiness. Ages well with dramatic flavor evolution. Will be periodically tapped throughout the years.

2005 Vintage - Hazy amber appearance, with a fluffy creamy head. Served slightly too cold to pick up major aromatic notes. Sweet bready cereal malts. A definite malty presence and barely detectable hop presence. Candi sugar, cotton candy sweetness, and a very sweet hoppy aftertaste that lingers very long on the palate.

Fairly sraight-forward barley wine (the sticky/sweet/alchohol variety). Big chewy body yields sticky molasses, definitive woodiness, and the light burn of alchohol. Very flat beer - as is typical of the style. There is a toasted malt underlying everything here, giving the flavor a more defined shape.

Hard Liver 2005
2004 vintage
Weird metallic and burnt hops in the nose, some burnt grains as well, but covered by a light cherry and fruit presence. Nicely balanced, very drinkable, with a sweet and light hop flavor. No off-flavors. Nothing killer, just plain drinkable even if it doesn’t set any records.
