COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named to commemorate the La Salle Hotel, once a Seattle bawdy house and the original home of the Pike Brewing Company. Old Bawdy is a vintage-dated, high-gravity beer brewed with peated Scotch malt. It has a deep golden bronze color, a fruity rich taste, and an aggressive and dominating hop character with smoky undertones that are reminiscent of Scotch whiskey.

theisti (3734) - Kansas, USA - JAN 28, 2013
22 oz bottle shared by beastiefan2k. The pour is a hazed golden copper with not much of a tan head. The aroma is soft melting caramel, honey, toffee, and a bit of dried fruit (fig). The taste is the nice soft caramel in the front, moving towards a yeast expression and the dried fruit in the back. The flavors are nicely integrated. The palate is medium to heavy bodied, low carbonation level and nicely integrated booze to the finish. Nice Barley Wine, thanks for sharing this one Eugene.

Appearance: Hazy golden with a big off-white head and good lacing
Aroma and flavors of floral hops, caramel and toasted malts
Good, but I think this would be better in a few years after hops fade some.

Not the top barley wine I believe (need to do a side by side tasting to really tell). Sweet flavour of caramel, bread, dried fruits, hops and grass. Dry hoppy finish.
