Slightly hazy red - brown beer. Short lived white head. Semi dry palate. Rich malt but it’s not creamy. Some fruity Port Wine character with a little marmite and molasses. Finishes dry with a little fruit. Not what I was expecting at all! Hides the alcohol well.

brokensail (10917) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 21, 2011
A: The full bottle pours perfectly into my Hair of the Dog tulip. Dark amber in color with a finger of khaki colored head with some spotty lacing. S: Starts off with caramel and toffee on the nose. A hint of booze comes through, not surprising for a beer that’s north of 11% ABV. Some definitely fruitiness to it, maybe some pineapple along with grapefruit. T: Warming alcohol to go with what is mostly bread and toffee. This probably could have used some more time as there is quite a bit of green apple flavor. Some other fruit notes like blackberries. Maybe a little chocolate on the finish. Unfortunately, it’s sort of watery. M: Thin in body and a touch watery. Carbonation is low to medium. O: Amazing how much better the barrel aged one is. Not an awful barleywine, but not my favorite either.
