COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rye Barleywine Style Ale. The unicorn may have finally found its match in Death Incarnate. But hold your horned horses, because the unicorn lives to rye another day! What a sickle joke! But, we aren’t tricking you, this barley wine is a real treat, with a rich malt skeleton and a more than paranormal amount of hops. If you’re going to harvest soul-y one beer this season, don’t fear the reaper...

AWISLguy (1050) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Bomber from Bottles & Cans; batch #221/222/223, so early October batch date. Picked up quite fresh, and cellared 3 months - served at cellar temperature. Pours an orangey brown with an orange head leaving some nice stripes of lace on the glass. Aroma is holy hops! Lovely fruits, heavy citrus, sweet pine, and grass. Taste is sweet fruits, caramel, citrus, pine and heavy resin. Very sweet, between the fruitiness and the malts, and super hoppy. Medium bodied and very sticky. Finishes super sweet and somewhat alcoholly. Not sure what a great barleywine "should" be, but a brew that tastes like a very good - if sweet and fruity - DIPA would be a very good beer in my book. Very enjoyable ... if sweet.
