COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer began as a celebration of our January anniversary, but it is now being incorporated into a year round offering. We use an assortment of crystal malts and throw a little Belgian Candi into the Brew Kettle to give a hearty maltiness. Dry hopping with American Hops gives this English style a refreshing American twist. Be cautious with this beer as overindulgence can result in the shit hitting the fan.

A bit harsh. Aroma perfect. Taste has strong bitter ending. Aroma is citrus aroma. Nice mouthfeel. Thickness for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

odinstyr (761) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - DEC 25, 2016
Pours copper with moderate white head. Smells of toffee, pit fruit, spruce. Taste is balanced - sweet and bitter, deep maltiness combined with a not-overwhelming hoppiness.

Arayaga2 (2157) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 16, 2016
Dirty blonde with a white head. Very malty, light butterscotch aroma, with tangerine peel. Taste is strangely minerally and watery. 17 overall for a great beer name. $3/12oz can

Bottle. Nose heavy caramel, dark tofee, bark, lightly green hops, light rind; pour is a beautiful gradient amber from reddish-orange up top down to clear golden at the bottom, with a slightly oil and soapy beige head. Taste strongly bitter with a great hop bite, but not extreme; a little paper and mild astringency, but not bad; strong alcohol but only a wisp of fume, no burn but a hint of warmth in the chest -- overall very good incorporation. Classic woodsy, slightly nutty hops, light but pleasant roastiness, touch oily, touch soapy and definitely palate-cleansing, good classic American C-hops with a bit of a Nuggetty, Northern Brewery ballast. Medium sweet but thats more from the heavy floral perfuming of the hops and oiliness than sugar, and is soon gone. Bright, fresh, with a swishable fullish body and lightness despite the chewy caramel, and the crystal malts arent overdone for once! A great take on the type of Barleywine I was drinking ten years ago, with subtle but important improvements to balance and drinkability. [2016.12.04: 3.8]

strong equally balanced malt/floral hops aromas. dark gold and hazy in color with huge long lasting head. taste is well balanced of strong light caramel malts and floral hoppiness.

monk191 (1874) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2016
A nice and different barleywine. Pours a bright orange with a thick white head. Smells of malt. Taste is dryer then most barleywines, almost like a cross between a barleywine and a pale ale. Had on tap at West Coast Drinkery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great ballgame of sweet and bitter. Way too drinkable for a 10% barleywine. Smoother than Duke Silver.

Delicious but dangerous! This does not taste like a 10% drink! Super yummy.

Small bubbly shortlasting head, hazy. Aroma is slightly concentrated grassy, leafs, weeds, minerals, bark, lawn, hops, paper, sawdust, moss, alcohol, citrus peel. Taste is slightly dry and harsh grassy, weeds, bark, minerals, moss, paper, harsh hops, lawn, flowers, alcohol, cardboard. Medium bitterness, dry and harsh mineraly mouthfeel. Meh!
