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.

Writing this based on what I remember from last night's consumption. Nice amber color. Pleasant aroma with a somewhat thick mouth presence and quite tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

stefannilssons (1518) - SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2014
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.
