COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our 100th batch, brewed for the enjoyment of the brewers, but popular demand forced us to release it commercially. Most enjoyable in a comfortable chair in front of a roaring fire.

Recommended serving temperature 16°C/61°F Ingredients: Maris Otter, wheat, and chocolate malt; Columbus, Chinook, and Centennial hops; English ale yeast, and our local Grimstad water.

23,5°P, 80 IBU, 10% ABV.

Editor’s note: Even though the label says "Barley Wine" in the States, the brewery usually says it’s brewed to be an IIPA. The American label was supposedly a glitch. In Europe it’s sold as an IIPA. But to save the admin crew some time dealing with user feedback, it’s listed as a Barley Wine.

Nice dark muddy color to it. Reminds me of a tamarind juice i once had. Head minimized pretty quick, but left a nice lacing on the glass. initiall hopy taste which then turned yeasty, and sweet. I dont know what year this bottle was but the carbonation needed to be added to it again.

Bottle thanks to Dorwart at DB’s. Light brown color with a small off white head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit hops along with some caramel malt and a whiff of alcohol. Flavor was sweet and caramelly, with enough bitter grapefruit hops to cut through it. Warming alcoholic finish.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - SEP 23, 2006
Bottle shared by Mullman at Oktoberfest at Dickinsonbeer’s. Poured a dark amber (quite dark for a IIPA) with a white head. Sweet vinous cany and grapefruit hop aroma. Flavor is bitter grapefruit hops up front, leading to a sweet yeasty finishi. Surprisingly malty for the style, but very nicely done with good hop flavor.
