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.

On tap at City Tap. Pours dark reddish brown with tight, thick, off white head. Aroma is dried cherries and toasted bread. Flavor is sweet to start with bread and dried fruit. Then bitter piney hops take over. Finish is long and bitter. A perfect American barley wine with European nuances. Very good.

BlazerT (308) - POLAND - SEP 9, 2015
Bottle. Sensoric. Deep red almost brown with medium, densed, ligh brown head. The head retention is not co bad, as well lacing. Heavy malty aroma - mainly caramel and toffee. In the second row some medium fruity and piney notes, but partly covered by heavy malty profile. The taste is highly bitter, the real hop bomb. The bitterness is long and intense, little balanced by malty sweetness. Full body, sticky and oily texture, average carbonation. Finish is bitter and hoppy. Alcohol warming is quite recognizable.

huineman (432) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
66 cl bottle at Irreale, Madrid. Pours cloudy dark amber with fawn head. Aroma is extremely complex and intense: Pedro Ximenez, figs, dates, quince custard, strawberry jam, ripe banana... Taste is complex as well. At once fresh, metallic, sweetish and very bitter, with a long aftertaste that lasts long, long, long.
