COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewers in the midlands of England would boil their barley wines ales for longer times to intensify their flavors. In making Massive! we used only British Halcyon pale malt and boiled for eight hours, giving the beer a deep ruby color and rich malt flavor. Heavily hopped, Massive! is a beer that can be enjoyed now for its intensity, or after years and years and years of aging.

A nice standard, but tasty barleywine. Pours a beautiful deep Amber with a tan head. Smells of barleywine. Taste is quite sweet, standard barleywine, with a malty finish.
