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!

Bottle courtesy of TBC. Pours copper with an off white head. Smells of caramel, lots of fruity hints. Taste is a little messy with a lot of chewy malt and some resiny hops. Average.

Thanks kiefdog for the share. Pours gold amber with a white head. Nose is malt, hops, raisins, more hops, sugar, fruitiness, and more hops. Flavor is very similar with lots of hopiness and some maltiness. Overall a decent barleywine, but not something I would seek out; seemed a bit unbalanced and uberhoppy, but not in a Stone way.

maltdog (617) - Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Packaged in a massive one liter bottle shaped like a SaturnV rocket with narcissistic label hype, and filled to within a half inch of the swing-top cap. Pours hazy cinnabar with slo-mo bubbles and puffy beige foam; sticky lace forms a rugged Antarctic panorama. Hoppy nose, citric and “green”, that smells strongly of sourdough and fresh-felled pinetree. Decidedly unbeerlike flavor… powdered iced-tea-with-artificial-lemon-flavor, Kool-Aid, peach, and peppermint. Alcohol taste is well hidden and clean. Cliched Pinesol finish. Mouthfeel: barely medium-full, sugary, and creamy with ethanol. The aftertaste swells to a cherry-chocolate bitterness, then fades to lime jello and high octane heat. Not very complex or unique; there is a superficial, single-track focus on fruity hops without any supporting malt or yeast character, and the beer quickly becomes trite, even boring.

Koelschtrinker (10631) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
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

DSG (5782) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 18, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2010 [9/5/09] Bottle sample during LCRBM at Kulminator in Antwerp. Orange-colored. Aroma of yeast, grains and some fruits. Sweet flavor with some yeast and grains. Dry finish.
