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!

Pours a cloudy amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of fruity hops, caramel and candied fruits. Flavor of fruity hops, caramel, candied fruits and bitterness. The body is light to medium with a liquorous texture and soft carbonation.

Sampled at DLD2010. Pretty random getting to try this. Aroma of caramel, toffee, and strong alcohol. A bit of plums and hops. Flavor is mostly fruit and caramel. Some toffee. Sherry notes. Lots of badassness here. I kind of dug this for a georgian barley wine.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 28, 2010
22 oz bottle from GAManiac. Pours crystal clear amber with a big thick beige head that leaves lots of lacing. Big aroma of caramel, figs and a bit of alcohol. There is a definite hop bitterness in the flavor that I really didn’t get in the aroma, then the sweet caramel and dark fruit flavors balance out the bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation and a syrupy mouth feel. Overall this is a nice Barley Wine, probably good both fresh and aged.

Another fantastic surprise from SpringsLicker. Intensely rustic, russet-colored pour with a rocky, tan head that slowly dissipates. This is a big one. Huge malt nose of candied pineapple and caramel, with the hops hiding in the background, ready to pounce into action. Flavor is a malt-wave of sweet fruit, reminding me slightly of ’bananas foster’ in its richness, while a brigade of hops back things up to balance everything out. Letting it warm up caused the mouthfeel to become a bit ’slick’ and alcoholic, and was surprisingly more enjoyable at a ’cooler’ stage. Highly drinkable despite the 10%. I feel like this is an unique marriage between an English and American style barelywine. This enormous bottle was devoured by 6 brew-lovers. My father, brother in law, friends, and I send a big thanks to Jay for sending this wonderful treat for us to enjoy! We certainly got a ’kick’ out of it!

MeadMe (1246) - Riverview, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2010
A: Pours a nice shade of amberish orange with a thin white head. Not much retention and no lace. S: Caramel malt, citrus, and hints of pine sweetness. T: The caramel malt can be picked up along with a bit of roast. It is rather hoppy with the hops tending to be more resionous pine than citrus. Both flavors can be picked up though. M: On the fuller side of medium, bold, sweet yet hoppy. D: Just good, not great.

I poured the 22 bottle into my DFH snifter to enjoy for a while. It produced a finger worth of white head that trailed of to a thin lace. The body of the brew was a cloudy burnt orange in color The first thing I got from the aroma was a slight oxidation, I due expect to find that on a barleywine with some age. I got some citrus aromas’ in there as well as some caramel malts. The flavor was sweet malts followed by a nice little orange maybe even tangerine flavor. It finished with a nice light bitter from the hops. I am guessing probably it was even hoppier a few months ago. It had a light to medium feel in my mouth with light carbonation so what I expect for the style It is an easy drinking brew. I am having no problems working through the bomber. I liked it but it wasn’t one of my tops in the style but by no means one of the worse Serving type: bottle

One liter bottle thanks to someone from awhile back- thanks man! Pours a deep bronze color with a large foamy white head. A great sweet BW flavor; rich caramel, loads of hops, sweet and fruity. The flavor is similar; a rich robust flavor of caramel, fruity hops, sweet candies and fruit. Very nice and well-balanced. Tasty, I could have drank the liter myself- thankfully I did not.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2010
1 liter- batch 1. Pours a medium to light amber with a thinning white head. Aroma is light boozy, alcohol is apparent upfront, still ok though- tons of big sweet caramel and sugary malts, lots of citrusy hops, fruity as well- amarillo-like. Flavor is citrusy with lots of big sweet malts, sugary almost, with an earthy leather thing going on in the end- good bitter hops to counter the sweet malts,
