COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our 20th Anniversary Ale is pure, with no additives or preservatives. In order to maintain the freshest flavor possible, we do not pasteurize our beer. Many of its subtle flavors are delicate and would not stand up to the heat of pasteurization. We recommend that this product be stored cold to avoid any degradation in flavor. Malt: This beer is brewed with Maris Otter, pale two row, Munich and Chocolate malted barley. Maris Otter accounts for 60% of the grist. Hops: We bittered the beer with Centennials, finished it in the kettle with Cascades and dry hopped with Simcoe. Yeast: We use our house Saint Arnold yeast.

SinH4 (2324) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2016
Bottle shared for Koelschtrinker’s 15k! Murky brown color with small tan head. Aroma is bourbony, figs, raisins. Taste is molasses, brown sugar, bittersweet, lots of stuff going on. More complex than my review. Not too sweet, a beautifully balanced Barley Wine!

Tap a tap-house. Brown, low offwhite head. Strong preserved fruit, plums in the aroma, caramel, figs, cocoa nibs. Chewy, cake like, plum pudding aftertaste. Very nicely balanced and drinkable.

tmoreau (3516) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2016
Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing a ruby highlighted, walnut color, with a modest layer of off white/light tan head foam, and spots of lacing. The nose was dried, candy-like fruit, malt sweetness, with kind of a fruit cake scent. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste was similar notes, added an earthy hop bitterness and some complementary alcohol warmth. Decently flavorful, with a British-like nature.

Draft at MBCP 2016. Nose is grassy. Not much booze. Very bitter. Interesting. A lot of boost. Meh

Headbanger (3773) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2016
22oz bottle 2/3/16 (Spec’s-Addison)-40° in Tulip-Pours brown with a small tan head. Aroma of dried fruit, caramel, toffee, and sweetness. Taste of the same with a bit of hops on the back end along with alcohol. This full bodied brew is well balanced and hits the spot on a chilly night.

Originally rated on 6/14/14. Wow i couldnt tell by tasting that this is a barleywine.. I thought it was more of a brown IPA. Deep brown, but clear body. A thin tan head left some spotty yet thick lace behind. Aromas of caramel, and chocolate malts, some fruitiness from the yeasts and a nice citrusy hop presence. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly sticky. Nice complex flavors of the citrus hops,caramel malts and fruity yeasts intermingle nicley, and there was a slight chocolate presence. A bit on the thin side for a barleywine, yet satisfying and complete, without being overwhelming. Nice anniversary beer..
