COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The biggest beer we brew! This beer is all about malt and it dominates the flavor with just enough hops to keep this malty beast in check.

Enjoyed at gabf 2014. It pours with a nice crystal clear copper body that supports a full tall tan head of foam. The modest aroma has a malty sticky sort of aroma to it and mixed with prunes and some brown sugar. This is a light aroma but it seems to be in line with the overall experience. The taste starts sweet thick and kind of punchy with malts and kind of bright notes of raisins and prunes covered in brown sugar. It also gets a soft sweet layer of molasses joining in into the finish. This is a pretty nice English style barleywine. I would think a year or so would smooth this out into something wonderful.

Vintage 2010 at brewery for ogrefest. Pour is medium copper with thin creme colored head. Sweet fruit and caramel aromas abound. Dried fruit like figs and dates, sweet but balanced, some hint of hops left but mostly a malt bomb. Excellent example of an aged European barley wine.

Poured on kraft at the source. Pours a darker amber with a beige head of foam. The aroma is sweet and fruity with some tropical fruit influences. Mild bitterness throughout. Kind of reminds me of maraschino cherries.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Sample at Lucky’s in Dayton. The beer is a clear dark amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet malt, hops and caramel. Full-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, earthy hops and caramel. The finish is malty up front with a resiny hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
