COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our American-style Barleywine undergoes a three hour boil to intesify the caramel malts and the enormous Pacific Northwest hop charge. The result is a rich, estery brew with toffee notes and citrus hop flavors layered throughout. Enjoy this brew fresh today or lay it down for aging to see how the flavors of each vintage evolve.

Tropisk humle i aromen, lite karamell, sötma. Alkoholen skiner igenom lite.

Det här var helt okej, men jag måste nog erkänna att jag blev lite besviken. Smaken var spretig och lätt spritig med inslag av russin och äpple, kroppen var dock stabil men balansen sken med sin frånvaro.

hackobock (1202) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget (2013 version). Pours clear dark amber with a large dense off-white head. Aroma is very sweet malty with caramel, raisins, light licorice notes, some citrus hop notes. Taste is sweet caramel, light burnt caramel and roasted bitterness. Medium/full bodied, light sticky texture.

SamTheBarrel (385) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2014
650ml brown bottle, poured into a snifter glass. Appearance is mahogany with a medium sized beige head, that reduced quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma of pine, orange peels and caramel. Flavours of orange peels, resin, caramel, maple suryp and a hint of rye sourdough bread. Taste is medium sweet and medium-heavy bitter. Palate is full bodied, soft slightly sticky texture and average carbonation. A strong beer with sharp flavours, quite good but would have liked it a little smoother, mellower and less hoppy.

Flaska från SB. Rödbrun vätska med gräddigt skum. Traktorlass med fyllig maltdoft, karamellig och jumjum god. Därefter överväldigas näsan av en massiv humlearom. Gräddig eldig munkänsla där godisbilen återfinns med brända karameller och gräddkola. Runt detta som ett omslagspapper omhöljer beskan. Lång eftersmak.

Flaska. Doft helt ok. Smaken drar oerhört mycket åt starkvin typ sherry. Torkade frukter med en avslutning av bra beska. För mycket starkvin o för lite ölkänsla.
