As the mercury falls we inevitably see the heft in our beers climb. As the bulky beers begin to brew we all size up our holiday season. Family members begin to make their pilgrimage to the patch of land they call home, excessive meals are planned, gluttony ensues. We welcome the cold and greet these holiday-rich days with Quakerbridge Barley Wine. An incarnation of a Half Acre favorite, Marty Stouffers Wild America Barley Wine, this weighty beer is a choose-your-own-adventure experience. Freshly plugged, this beer is a gooney 10% hop guster to bring your holiday retreat to its knees, but time allows this brew to round and settle into an ever maltier bomb of balance. Whether your mug is beside a Thanksgiving gobbler or a holiday ham, let our bottled elixir join you and your family on its collision course of celebration. So, pull a cork and belly up to home this hulk of a holiday hazer will settle any family retreat into a warming submission hold of mirth.

On tap at the brewery during Big Hugs day -- Honestly at this point in the day my senses were degraded. From what I recall and what I recorded, this was a very nice Barleywine.

Bottle 65 cl. Pours a cloudy, opaque amber with a yellowish head. Thick and rich aroma of caramel malts and citrusy hops - very American. Rich and solid body, very caramellish but everything is kept wonderfully in balance by the great aroma hops. Some late, warming alcohol. Love it! 081114

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Ed. Labeled as Marty Stouffers Wild America. Muddy, opaque copper with no head... Barely even a dingy, gray ring. Aroma of light caramel & some cardboard-y oxidation. Faint anise, prune, & other dark fruit. Kind of stale. The taste (unfortunately) shows even more oxidation... Stale paper & cardboard overcast whats underneath. Dried, dark fruits, prunes, caramel drizzle, with a back-end hint of earthy bitterness. May have been good fresh, but the oxygen got to this one, sadly.
