Now THIS is a barley wine. The best I’ve ever had with Old Guardian in close second. So smooth, with the right amount of hops and great flavor.

Bottle at the parentals with my dad. Pour is deep, murky brown with a frothy brown head and great lacing. Caramel, toffee, woody, minty, roasty, herbal, figgy, and plummy aroma. Taste roasty, slightly oxidized, black licorice, chocolate, raisins, figs, toffee, sticky bread, and biscuity with a lightly roasted finish. Creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Pretty good.

I’m currently rating every SN brew I’ve ever had in one clean sweep.
I grew up on the classic SN Pale having it around during high school, and since have watched SN grow into a national representation of incredible craft beer. Living 45 mins away is a treat for the random growler fill. Keep up the amazing work and thanks!
