brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Pours a dark brownish ruby red color with a finger and a half dark tan head that dissipates somewhat slowly and leaves a thick ring of lacing. Smells of lots of carmel and toffee, lots of bready notes from the malt, raisin, some brown sugar, a little dankness from the hops, as well as some grapefruit and pine. Thought there would be more hops on the nose. Taste starts with some resinous hop qualities such as grapefruit, pine, and orange rind. Then in the middle the hop qualities take a back seat to the malts. Lots of carmel, toffee, breadiness, some molasses or brown sugar. Then the finish is more of the heavy malt presence: lots of sweetness and breadiness, as well as raisin, but more of the resinous hops show through as well. More complex hops flavors show through on the end such as floral, grass, and resin. Some booze on the finish that provides a warming sensation on the way down. Tastes very much like Bells This One Goes to 11 when it warms, as the hops show through much more. A pretty full body with a thick, creamy, and oily mouthfeel. Have had better American barleywines, but still decent.

Pours a dark orange with a light brown lasting head. Aroma includes malt, caramel, fruits and liquorice with some alcoholic notes. Flavor is a nice blend of sweetness and bitterness with some alcohol traces. Thick body with a balanced carbonation and a long semi-sour end.

Draft at City Tap House. Dark amber, tight silky head. Boozy, malty aroma, mildly sweet. Taste leads with the booze, some nice caramelly malts, molasses and toffee. Warmth and plenty of it.

Green Flash Barleywine is aggressive in all the right ways. This beer is intensely hoppy and intensely malty. While the hops gain the upper hand, there’s enough malt in here to control the bitterness. Tastes like English toffee finished by citrusy hops. For all the booze and Pacific Northwestern hops, I couldn’t help feeling that this Barleywine drank a lot easier than it should have. It may be intense, but the balance is done brilliantly.

Draft. Hug malty and cascade type hop Jose. Deep orange to red with medium light tan head. Taste is huge in hop bitterness and malt chewiness. Decent Garbage.

Zymurgeist2 (2243) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 15, 2016
Draught at Harry’s Hofbrau. Weirdly pleasing blend of both rich caramel malt and citrus hops. Clear copper with surprisingly well retained white head. Flavor follows aroma, but there is a sharp bitterness on the back half of the palate that prevents this from being top notch. Meadow and fresh cut grass appear in the flavor as it warms. tasty.

Buenísima. Tiene mucho cuerpo, poco gas. El alcohol está muy bien integrado. El sabor final es con tonos a regaliz y un punto afrutado.
