COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Broad Street Barley Wine aged in American Oak barrels. Our Barley Wine is dark red in color and has an original gravity of 1.120 (24 Plato). The malt complexity of this classic ale style is incredible. The Broad Street Market is located just blocks from the Appalachian Brewing Company. This indoor farmers market was built in 1863 and is one of the oldest continuously operating farmers markets in the United States. The beautiful brick façade and natural wood doors are typical of the structures in Downtown Harrisburg; including our own building.

Dark brown pour, drank alongside the regular version during my family trip to Harrisburg/Hershey. Deep brown color, with minimal head, and aroma of figgy fruit, caramel malt, oaky bourbon. The palate was a tad thinner than the regular, with some dark fruit, and oaky spirit flavors. I think the regular was a tad thicker and better balanced, but this one is worth a try if it is available.

Stine (1572) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Poured from a 12 oz handbottle. Somewhat transparent dark brown color. Bourbon and oak aroma with suggestions of plum, bonfire smoke, reduced maple syrup. Plenty of firm and rich chocolate presence. Flavor is a massive departure into acrid coffee grounds, bad cocoa, and dirty toffee cake, though retaining a charred oak presence that tempers things slightly. Port-like toward the end, but mainly in sweetness and alcoholic strength; simplistic. Palate is thin whiskey. Uninspiring, but not bad. Thanks, Paul!
