dukeredhair (243) - California, USA - JAN 18, 2013
BLEGH. This is not good. On tap at Kinetic to snifter. Pours brown no head, aroma of alcohol. little hops little malt mostly just booze. Taste is the same with mostly a hot tongue. palate is thin and hot like it was spiked with too much corn sugar. Overall the clear loser of the bunch. might be one of the worst barleywines I’ve ever had.

Draft at the brewery, served in a flight. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head that settles into a ring and leaves spots of film in the glass. Notes of brown sugar, caramel, toast, and earth. Pretty straightforward. Medium-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. One-dimensional.
