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.

Bottle thanks to my Winter Secret Santa. Murky brown pour with a small head that fades to a thin ring. Aromas are raisin bread, caramel, toffee, and wood. Tastes great. Nice sweet malt up front with a bitter hop finish. Toasted raisin bread and caramel mostly. Some wood, citrus peel, and vanilla too. Medium to full body. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Solid barleywine. No hint of the high abv.

Brown bubbly brew with a little sediment floating about but absolutely no head. Smells of malt and alcohol. Thick brew with lots of malt but enough hops to take away the malt sweetness and add a hoppy taste and dry aftertaste. While not the most refreshing barley wine I have ever tasted it is interesting enough to make me want more. Then there is the price tag, so yep this is a one time deal.

Apricot color, small white head. Aroma of sweet malt and a bit of hops. Very sweet, somewhat fruity, decent, needs age.

TChrome (1425) - Bedford, Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Beer pours rusty brown color with a minimal beige colored head. Aroma is true to style with notes of bread, resin, and alcohol. The taste is bitter with a bit of burned flavor. Just a bit hot from the alcohol. Enjoyable barley wine from Saint Arnold.

Poured out of a bomber, I love the reddish brown color. Hops is moderate, but still stronger than the malt. Quite an enjoyable sipper.
