COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
after years of scallywagging about and dallying with any style that caught its fancy, good ole JR is returning to it’s original form, an American Barleywine. Originally crafted as a holiday brew that Drake’s brewers could get behind, Jolly had all the warming powers of malt and alcohol, minus the strange holiday beer ubiquitousness of overpowering pie spices, and finished with the open handed smack of bold Northwest American hops. The 2012 Jolly Rodger is full-bodied with rich caramel malt undertones and mild biscuit malt character. Sufficient additions of West Coast hops balance the malt with pine needle aromatics and satisfying bitterness.

Alexanderdahl (72) - DENMARK - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours caramel amber. Smells like jam, caramel, pineapple, old hops sweetness. Gives you a straight hook of bitternes at first sip, almost knocking you over, but smoothes into a jammy sweetness. Lots and lots of malts and slightly fruity.
