COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this especially bitter ale in dedication to all the worlds would-be astronauts, in remembrance of the 2005 St. Patricks Day Massacre on the Brewery Party Grounds and also in joyous celebration of our 20-day suspension that following January. Do the crime. Do the time. Get the bragging rights. Cheers!

Hop bomb explosion- old ale or not! Caramel malt backed up by hops approaching a barley wine. Very good.

Quick3Beers (1087) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 13, 2017
Pours a rich copper from a bottle, big toffee aroma and flavor, a bit of nondescript fruit. A bit boozy, but not terribly. Pretty good beer.

Tap at Flying Saucer Emporium, Memphis. Colour is clear dark orange with small white head. Aromas and flavors: Sweetness, fruits, some hops and malts. Too sweet.

Zgpt (40) - Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Pours dark amber with small medium head. Nice sour citrus aroma. Sharp nutty citrus taste carries through to sour citrus aftertaste. Nice strong alcohol, don't see how this could be any better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clean, yet, dark copper color with fluffy white head of foam. Caramel, lightly herbal, sweet grapefruit, and dry pine on the finish. Sweet and dank with a cool story behind it to boot.

teamsale (242) - Washington, USA - JAN 29, 2017
Bottle pours a clear and fairly carbonated amber with a one-half finger beige head and great sticky lacing. Aroma is sweet and sour, malty, earthy. Flavor is a strong, sweet, malty goodness. Mild to medium bitterness and a lingering aftertaste.

BarrelTamer11 (10) - Escalon, California, USA - JAN 16, 2017
Gorgeous glowing mahogany with a cream colored head that disapates quickly, minimal lacing. Aroma of bread, candied citrus, cherries & alcohol. Bitter & sweet flavors are balanced masterfully in this one. Voluptuous feel on the palate. Very urbane Lagunitas brew.

Palme (4398) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2016
0.355l bottle brought home from BarleyWine. Lots and lots of a big tall foamy almost fluffy head in this one! Off-white colored and under a cloudy almost copper amber body. It smells really nice. Lots of malty biscuity elements. Sweetish, red berry fruity and it just oozes American style barley wine this. Whom doesnt like that? Its as sweet and near sticky in the taste as the aroma suggested. Sugary, syrupy and definitely boozy! Warming. It has a really soft carbonation level and a good oily texture in the mouth. Bitter nuts combined with sweet biscuits, melon zest, alcohol and red berries I guess sums this one up quite nicely. Nice and classic in the taste, loaded with flavors. A nice sipper. 27.05.2015

rubyroo (146) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 16, 2016
Aroma sweet malt, orange candy, booze. Appearance is a copper with a sheet of head and lines of lace. Taste is caramel, biscuit, orange, pine. Palate is medium bodied with a bittersweet finish. Overall- interesting, kind of a DIPA / Barleywine.

bergstaden (2675) - Rros, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2016
Dark golden with a white head - Fruity hop aroma - Malt body to support a hop profile that has fruity flavours and bitterness - The malt and fruityness goes into the finish - This was good

Fujimo2000 (131) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Pours beautiful dark golden color with a good lasting carbonation. Aroma is strong malt with a nice citrus mixed. Sweet citrus with a good malty finish.
