COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The biggest farm animal to come out of the SweetWater Barn! We bucked up and threw everything, including the kitchen sink, into this "Jackass" concoction. At 10% ABV and over 90 IBU - You’ll know it when it hits you in the back of the head!

Hefiger und alkoholischer Antrunk, der sonst eher leer wirkt. Auffallend mild, kaum würzig, einfallslos. Zum Ende hopfiger. Komisches Bier, das mich nicht überzeiugen kann. /9/9/7/11/8

Reviewed from notes. Thanks to bmanning for this bottle. Pours a moderate orange color with a white head with surprising staying power and lace. The nose brings strong American hops with a lot of citrus. Some sweet malt underneath with light fruits. The taste is a bit more balanced with some strong citrus flavors meeting head on with sweet malt, light fruits, cherries, and a bit of alcohol. Good medium body with a nice alcohol bite and a good level of bitterness. Overall this drinks quite well and is toward a malty DIPA. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-28-2010

Bomber via trade. Does DP stand for "donkey punch" or is it...drain pour maybe? Pours hazy amber with a one-finger creamy off-white head and very good lacing. Very sweet and malty aroma, with caramel, brown sugar, resins, and herbal notes. Sweet and sugary malty flavor, with both brown and white sugar evident, caramel, toffee, and faded herbal hops. A little too sweet. Sticky and slightly syrupy on the mouthfeel with soft carbonation. About average or maybe a little better for the style.

Bottle from a trade with kp. Pours dark orangish amber color with off white head. Sweet fruity aroma with lots of citrus. Sweet caramel flavors with big citrus hops. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. A nice hoppy (American) barley wine. Thanks Keith.

Big ass bottle. British barley wine, but hoppier. OK, maybe it’s just an American one, but sweet.

Big thanks to alexsdad06 for handing us this bottle at the end of the Grand Tasting. Pours a hazy orange with a good head and good lace. The aroma is some fruity hops and plenty of orange marmalade. The flavor is pretty earthy with some orange rind and fruity hops abound. Pretty nice beer!

Draft @ Taco Mac in Ellard Village. 2009 vintage. Finally got to taste this rarity. Poured a burnt sienna with some orange notes, good head, retained well and left tons of lace on the glass. This head was sticky. Opaque pour. Aroma was super hoppy, lots of pine and bits of caramel malt. Huge bitterness from beginning to end on this one. Along with the bitterness, big hoppy flavors finish this one out. Only a bit of booze detected, well hidden behind the array of hops and malt. Viscous mouthfeel with good carbonation. Came across more as a huge double IPA than a Barley Wine. Either way, I loved it.

Bottle sample. Pours light brown with an orange tint and medium beige head. Aroma is strong mollasses and funky fruits. Flavor is tons of mollasses up front with some slight hoppiness in the back. Medium bodied...sticky. I dont like mollasses....but this is good.

4oz sample. Pours a nice burnt orange with a minimal white head. Aroma is earthy hoppy and molasses. Taste is sweet maltyness. Hoppy at the backend with molassses. Medium mouthfeel with a bit of clamyness. Overall a pretty solid beer
