It’s our interpretation of a classic style loved for generations...MALT LIQUOR. Brewed with generous amounts of corn, a smattering of Biscuit Malt, and a punishing amount of Belma hops for a tasty strawberry aroma, in your face bitterness and creeping alcohol burn. 11% ABV, 8oz. pours only.

Not one to tread lightly on – you won’t be hanging TEN – you’ll be hanging ELEVEN, bro!

Tap at the brewery, certainly thought i was drinking a barley wine here, it has as strong boozey smell, overall pretty sharp around the edges and it was a bit challenging to drink, wasnt for me.

Draft at the brewery. Very amber clear pour into snifter with a thin layer of white head. Sweet citrus hops and astringent pert malts dominate the nose. Average carbonation, sort of thin mouthfeel, finish has some heat. Big pine and grapefruit flavor (less so), lots of bitter, definite hints of alcohol. Good flavor for sure, for a malt liquor and undoubtedly my favorite example of the style. Undetectable cousin of Colt 45. Too bad it wasn’t served in a paper bag...

Draft at the brewery. Best malt liquor ever. Full mouth feel. Sweet and not offensive. Limited booziness. Not sure a whole point is a good call but this is a fun beer.
