COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Caramel and toffee notes abound in this deep copper-colored American Barleywine-style ale alongside toasted malt and a hint of ripe dark fruits. Old Numbskull showcases malt sweetness, intense American hops, and an aggressive bitterness. Extremely well-balanced, the full-bodied mouthfeel and assertive hop profile leads into a deceptively smooth finish. Old Numbskull can be enjoyed now or laid down for years to come.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2018 W aromacie żywiczne, suszone owoce, miód gryczany, karmelowe, nuty cytrusowe, estrowe. W smaku dość słodkie rodzynki, lekka goryczka żywiczna, kwaśność cytrusowa. Na finiszu miód gryczany, chmielowość, karmel, melasa, cytrusowa owocowość. Wysycenie średnie, alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty, treściwe, sporo ciała, gładkie, pijalne, a zarazem degustacyjne. Świetne piwo.

Piana obfita, powoli opada zdobiąc szkło. Kolor miedziany, klarowny. Aromat pozostałości chmielowe w cytrusy, iglaki, karmel, słodko miodowy, owocowy, bardzo przyjemny. Smak oddaje to co w zapachu, spora słodycz, karmel, estry owocowe jest kontrowana chmielowymi akcentami cytrusów i lasu, sporą ale nie przesadzoną goryczką, alkohol ułożony, pije sie wyśmienicie. Piwo złożone, Bardzo Dobre, Klasyka ABW Brawo

Clear amber color with beige head. Aroma has caramelized malt and earthy, resiny , woody hop notes. Taste is really well balanced with rich, complex malts and earthy hop bitterness. Medium body, a bit sticky, soft carbonation. A great american style barleywine.

Angelmonster (202) - Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2018
2013 vintage Pours a copper, clear body. Head is 1/4 inch and beige. Lacing is great and head retention is good for a barleywine. Smells of caramel malt, toffee, slight butterscotch. Candied ginger is detected.,theres also some metallic copper coming through as beer warms. Alcohol is light for 11%, no hops present. Taste is big on caramelized sugar, liquid gold malt extract, and toffee that ends spicy. Alcohol becomes apparent the more i sip on it. Mouthfeel is nice, syrupy and slightly carbonated. Head retention added a silky presence going down. Overall this is a good interpretation of what a classic barleywine should taste like. Extremely malt forward and sweet with a alcohol/liquour finish. Great Desert beer, would love to try barrel aged versions.

Svesse (9135) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2017
(Bottle) Dark amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, hoppy nose with notes of resin, caramel, toast, dark rye bread, pine needles, citrus, some burnt rubber and a touch of alcohol. Malty, hoppy taste with caramel, toffee, orange peel, resin, dried fruit, toasted rye bread, a touch of chocolate and a finish with a generous citric, resiny bitterness and a warming touch of alcohol. Full body, with a certain sweetness. Solid and well made American style barley wine, with generous amounts of resiny/citric hops and a solid malt profile to back it up. Great beer!
