Drake’s Jolly Rodger 2012 1/5/13 notes: Bottle, $6.99. American Barley Wine, and shows its tried and true colors well. Toasty, piney aroma, robust and with hints of black cherry. Flavor is simultaneous wallops of bready, kilned malts and floral, piney, resiny hops. Could detect a fairly classic CCC possibly Simcoe hop blend, nothing nouveau here and that’s fun. Great beer. yespr (48915) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2013
