BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 7, 2012
On tap. Pours with a muddy orange hued body with a lasting white head that leaves great lace. Aromas are of tea, caramel, faded citrusy hops (orange), marmalade, alcohol, lots of esters. Maybe a slight savory note. Flavors are complex, brandy, caramel, dark fruits, orange, estery, balancing alcohol, malty, drinkable big barleywine with a high bitterness. Lower carbonation, fuller bodied, warming. Tasty malt complexity with a lot of (somewhat faded) hops.

Aroma big heavy malts right up front with solid dose of west coast hopping. Aroma rather typical what you would expect from Bear Republic not of barleywine.7+
Appearance amber with light haze. Good creamy top. Fine lace on glass.4-
Flavor and Palate : Big heavy body. Sticky sweet malts that are easily balanced by equally massive amount of hops. Texture itself was mild making this colossus quiet drinkable. Mature offering.
