COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We first brewed this to commemorate our 10th birthday in Oct’ 07, so, now that we’re 11 and a quarter years old, we’d thought we’d bring it back. The idea was to make a Hightail, but with the volume turned up. A more intense Hightail experience. It’s rich, full and malty. There’s strong but balanced bitterness and it comes in at 6.8% alc/vol.

Peachy hop notes with a toffee backbone and a little hint of something alcoholic on the nose, maybe a smidge of speyside malt. Biscuit gives way to some big liquorice flavours to taste and some more poached peach to finish. Maybe a little bit thin for the alcohol, but a nice brisk more-ish-ness that keeps you sipping.

Very strong. Barleywine aspects to it. Malt forward with a medium amount of bitterness to it.

TheJestersBeer (2034) - SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2012
Bottled. Pours a clear, deep amber, beihe head. The aroma is fairly focused on malt, lots of caramel, fudge, lightly roasted, marzipan, almonds, strawberries (!). Dry, medium body and bitterness. Malty taste, caramel, yeast, hops, marzipan, nuts. Feels like a lighter Barley Wine type of thing. (2012-02-28)

Solid effort once again from mountain goat. Sessionable but nothing fancy.
