COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cellared almost a year to date, this barley wine has developed int a complex brew with heavy malt characteristics. Dry hopped with German hops and given a secondary fermentation with sour cherries, look for notes of cherry, caramel and raisin.

Brewmaster was kind to give me a preview of this 1+year aged 2011 Barleywine. Pours a hazy caramel brown colored barleywine with a creamy off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing and a thick film top. Aroma and taste chances with temperature. When sampling cold, more of the grassy/floral hops is detected. Allow to come up to room temperature and the raisin, tart cherry and caramel malts is more distinct. The Tettnang hops hides some of the brown sugar and fruit, but still gives it some tart characteristics. Finish has a mild hop bite at first and then a spicy fruit and caramel malt aftertaste. The extra one-year aging as smoothed out the alcohol presence compared to the 2012 summer release.

On tap at Horny Hideaway. Hazy deep amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is malty with bourbon, grains and alcohol. Taste is boozy with big malt that’s lightly burnt, caramel, darker fruit and a hot finish.
