COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
after years of scallywagging about and dallying with any style that caught its fancy, good ole JR is returning to it’s original form, an American Barleywine. Originally crafted as a holiday brew that Drake’s brewers could get behind, Jolly had all the warming powers of malt and alcohol, minus the strange holiday beer ubiquitousness of overpowering pie spices, and finished with the open handed smack of bold Northwest American hops. The 2012 Jolly Rodger is full-bodied with rich caramel malt undertones and mild biscuit malt character. Sufficient additions of West Coast hops balance the malt with pine needle aromatics and satisfying bitterness.

alkolas510 (1482) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2014 Kopparfärgad / rödaktig med stort ljusbrunt skum som ligger kvar runt glaset! Doftar mycket karamellmalt och lite söt. Smaken är fyllig och bra kolsyrad med massor med malt och lite humle och en bra beska! God öl!

27.06.2014, 0,65l bottle @ home:
Big creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly consentrated grassy, leafs, pine needles, caramel malts, grass, hops, sap, citrus, alcohol, bark. Taste is kind of dry grassy, pine needles, bark, old leafs, hops, alcohol, citrus peel, sap, cardboard, grass, caramel malts. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

skortila (5987) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2014
Bottled. 10cl sample. The aroma has raisin, toast, caramel, some hoppiness still. Clear, red-brown coloured beer with a thin head. The taste is sweet with more bitterness towards the end. There is rarsin, caramel, toast. Good, but just a bit unbalanced.
