"Old, Old Wooden Ship": A 9.9% ABV barleywine that walks the line between English and American style ("Britmerican," says the beer board, because were cute like that). Notes of toffee and dates, assertive but not overwhelming hop presence, remarkably mellow for such a high-octane offering. We took our sweet time conditioning this one... And were more than a little bit proud of how it turned out.

This poured a murky dark red to brown color with a tiny biege head. Aroma was of light dark fruits, light garbage, and some stale green hops. Flavor was a mix between grape sweetness, and astringent and stale hops. A drinkable but not great barleywine.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5669) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a darkish nut brown with orange highlights and a medium sized foamy beige head that left decent lacing. The aroma was bitter and a bit rough with notes of caramel, vague fruity hops and pine. The flavor was bitter and rough with notes of pine, floral hops, faint caramel and a burnt presence underneath. Long dryish and rough pine and floral hop finish. Moderately full bodied. Interesting.
