Bottle, vintage 2015. I’ve had this a few times but I guess I’ve never rated it. Appearance is reddish brown with white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, caramel, and brown sugar. Taste is burnt brown sugar, pine, caramel, with a bitter hoppy finish. Medium mouthfeel, lots of carb. Overall, this is a great hoppy American barleywine, happy to have this any old time.

Draft at Bricks. Pours hazy brown with no head. Some hops, caramel and alcohol on the nose. Taste is strong bitterness with some caramel sweetness. Improves greatly as it warms up.
