COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Barley Wine Style Ale is brewed with double amounts of malts and hops to create a rich, mahogany colored, resinous brew. Aged for three full months before release, this ale is complex, strong, malty and full of character.

A decent introduction to the barleywine style, but lacks the complexity and depth of bad boys like Bigfoot and Full Sail’s Old Boardhead.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2003 must say that there is little experience better than chasing an 8% ABV Beer with a 9.1% ABV beer, to make you realize, that we are all “Mortal”! But then I do have a 13% ABV beer waiting to chase these two? A luminous deep ruby color on the pour, the head majestic in size, bubbly in texture, and light beige in color and the residual lace clings lovingly to the glass. A light hit of fusel alcohol, bubble bum, maybe a sweet over ripe pineapple tone, a great sniffer to be sure, start sweet and nicely malt laden, top is middling in feel. Acidic bite at the finish, the hops pounces on your palate, spicy and persistent, quite dry aftertaste that is long lasting and a great representative to the style.

Had the ’97, ’93, and ’92, and to generalize, a little too cloying. But of course it’s quality, coming from Bridgeport.
