Thanks to kan for this pour. Pours a red orange with a beige head. Odd aroma. Oxidized fruits with dusty bubblegum like bazooka joes when I was a kid. Fruity malt flavors with bitter spices. Odd earthy bitterness seems slightly sour and moldy. 7/3/6/3/13

Southern oregon brewing barrel-aged barleywine... Pours a hazy reddish caramel brown with a thin soapy head... Aroma of wet wood, darker caramels, and after a few aggressive swirls, more dark fruits make a presence... Flavorwise, mostly dark fruits, a little oak with a sharp somewhat tart bite in the finish and a lasting bitterness. Real aggressive and active carbonation might be due to the serving temp. 7/4/7/3/14

22 oz bottle. Almost clear ruby brown with some edgy froth. Nose is toffee, apple and plum with mild bourbon. Medium light with soft carb. Taste is toffee, grass and light bourbon. Easy drinking for a barleywine but a bit washed out.
