This beer began as a celebration of our January anniversary, but it is now being incorporated into a year round offering. We use an assortment of crystal malts and throw a little Belgian Candi into the Brew Kettle to give a hearty maltiness. Dry hopping with American Hops gives this English style a refreshing American twist. Be cautious with this beer as overindulgence can result in the shit hitting the fan.

Can. Pour is a cloudy burnt orange with an average white head and good lacing. Aroma is malty with grassy hops, stale dough, caramel, toffee, and sweet fruity smells. Taste is juicy tropical fruit at first. Caramel, pine, bread, and sweet malts. Thin for the style and a bit dry in the end.

Beachmaster (447) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 3, 2016
On draught. Pours a hazy orange amber,with a small white head. Nose is caramel and malt, and the taste follows. On the sweet side for a barley wine, but very tasty. Hides the alcohol well. Nice.

JoePeesie (924) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Pours a hazy golden red with decent head that clings to the glass. Bready nose, nice hop profile without being overly bitter. A bit more effervescent than I’d like, but all around very nice beer.

Skyview (5543) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Picked up single 12-oz can at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours a semi-hazy orange amber colored brew with a thick and rocky off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of piney and citrus hops, some candi sugar, caramel malt, and some bread dough. Taste is full bodied, spicy with flavors of pine and grassy hops with caramel malt and some alcohol presence. Finish is semidry, light spicy hops and a lingering mild bitterness. Allow to warm up and more alcohol presence comes forward. An average American-style, hoppy barley wine.

jbruner (3928) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy golden brown from the can with thin off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of nice piney hop notes and caramel sweetness. Taste is more toward the malty end, hint of bitterness. Not too shabby.

chinchill (4208) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2016
12 oz can. Strongly flavored and very complex. Hints of nutmeg, other spices, apple cider, apricots, peaches, moist brown bread, brown sugar and dark fruits pop up before the fruity, slightly earthy and boozy finish.

Poured from can into a snifter Appearance – The beer pours a deep golden color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam. The head fades super-fast leaving just a trace of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is sweet with lots of caramel and candied sugar which is mixed with some bready and slightly doughy smells. Along with these aromas are some lighter hop smells consisting mostly of pine and a little bit of grass. Taste - The taste begins with a very bready taste that just has a little bit of a caramel and candied sugar sweetness. As the taste advances the sweetness fades all while a modest showing of hop and some fusel come to the tongue. The hop is of an herbal and grassy nature, but contains a little bit of pine and citrus as well. In the end, with all the flavor transitions, one is left with a slightly drier and modestly hopped, but slightly fusel and overly bready taste. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average to slightly thinner for a beer of 10 % abv and has a carbonation level that is rather low. The low carbonation is great for the bready taste, but thicker body may have been slightly better and created a slightly nicer feel overall. Overall – If you like drier and modestly hopped barleywine’s then this may be for you. If not, then this is one to avoid.

12oz can 5/14/16 (Binny’s Mix A Six)-40° in Snifter-Pours dark amber with a small head. Aroma of hops, caramel, and sweetness. Taste of the same. This full bodied brew is well balanced and is downright tasty.

Can. For such a big bitter beer, goes down easy. Aroma and flavor hops first, but takes a turn different than an iipa (the install impression) with a slightly sweet biscuity malt undertone. Still hop forward with lots of citrus peel and pine, but definitely a Barleywine. Under appreciated in my book.
