LONG HAVE WE WANTED TO BREW TRIBUTE TO “1000M,” an epic Blonde Barleywine fashioned by the great brewers at the now-deceased Bitter End Brewery. A golden opportunity, and 8 years of pleading from our head cellarman Von J, have brought us full circle to this highly anticipated resurrection, 10 years to the very day of its first and only brew. 20°

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 13, 2013
On tap. Pours with a clear yellow hued body with a medium sized white head. From appearance this could be a pilsner. Aromas are clearly not. Grassy, big toasty and biscuity malt character, medium ester, alcohol roundness. Flavors are of alcohol, medium estery, toasty and freshly baked bread malt and yeast notes, floral hop. Bone dry. Medium carbonation. Warming. Liked it.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle:   Bright straw, sediment floating about, thin to moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Sweet pale breadiness, a touch of honey graham cracker and pale citrus bits on the nose.   Soft sweet bready malts up front, pale bready malts, not the whole wheat kind.   A touch of honey.   Low bitterness, hides the 9.3% ABV fairly well.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Soft warming bready finish.   Pretty simple, decent, but nothing as complex as I was hoping.   Tiz fairly clean tho.   Thanks Bill!

Pours a golden color with a white head. The aroma is full of apricots and oranges, as well as some alcohol and biscuit malt. There is also a strong sugar component in the aroma. The flavor has some strong orange citrus and pilsner malt notes. There is also some grass and a medium amount of bitterness. I also get some strong spicy notes and some alcohol in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(12oz bottle thanks to Dixonian) clear gold, soapy white bubbles. Nose is skunky, celery, can’t get past the UV skunking, american hops, grapefruit. Taste is vinous, brett, oak, grapes, wine, odd taste, something not right here.
