COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our own cult classic, Big Boris sports subtle changes in each years brew. This years version was brewed with pale and crystal malts and hopped with Chinook. Aged for a full 6 months prior to serving, this years brew bursts with ripe fruit flavors followed by a firm bitterness and a touch of alcohol warmth. Great today, should be much better in 5 or 10 years- if we can wait that long!

I remember drinking this stuff at the Stoudts Brewfest and remember thinking that it tasted more like a strong ale than a barley wine. I wish I could get into more detail, but oh well.

Not a great barleywine at all, sour, flavors were off, alcohol was way too present in the body & flavors, not really good at all

Poured a hazy gold with a small off white head and some nice lacing on the glass. Perfumey citrus hops (both sweet and tart), more fruit, and alcohol as well in the aroma. Sweet and burning alcohol taste, taste of sweet malt, orange peel, dry finish.
