COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American-style Barleywine. Still a youngster at this point (3 months), ODB has a long life ahead of it. At 13.2% abv and 100 IBUís this ale will age for years and develop over time. Look for a straight forward spicy citrus character from the exclusive use of Columbus hops and the considerable alcohol with a subdued malt background. This is a work in progress and we look forward to seeing how it ages.

On tap at the Longmont location. Pours a ruby/brownish color with a thin tan colored head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts, light floral hops, light citrus, alcohol. FLavor is a nice balance between and English and American style BW, mostly caramel, with some dried fruit, brown sugar, and citrus and piney hops. Palate is somewhat oily, full bodied, warming, and finished sweet. Honestly, one of the better BWís I ever had. This definitely needs to go in a can, world class!

Lemme get that ODB! On tap at the falling rock for their barleywine month and listed as ODB. Dark caramel color and it smelled fantastic. Lots of toffee, hops, reminded me of Bigfoot a little, very rich. If this was 13% Abv i didnít notice it even though I knew it was burly. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 02-14-2011 02:19:51

2009 vintage on tap @ the Common Table. Reddish brown brew with some tan head. Great nose of toffee, caramel, pine hops - flavor is very malty with some sweetness and a hop bite, especially as it warms.

Draft at Oskar blues, pours murky brown with white head. Nose of caramel, toasted malts, and raisin. Flavors have a big malty kick, loads of caramel, plums, and toasted nuts. Some oxidation coming off as port. Med body, strong bitterness finish and alcohol is in check. Not too shabby.
