COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In this ridiculously wonderful world weve created,we make beer- one batch at a time. As the scientist in us demands, we number said batches. And while every batch of our beer is special for us providing a fresh start on a new day, establishing an experimental opportunity, bringing together our minds and spirits, projecting our company forward each batch also scores time.

To celebrate our 3000th batch, we present a Belgian-style Barley Wine, simply called 3,000. Luscious layers of flavor begin with barley, wheat and rye malts followed by triple-hoppping with a single varietal. Fermentation, using two distinct yeast strains, achieves complexity in character and, of course, alcohol. This special batch was transferred into red wine oak barrels for eight months to age gregariously yet gracefully. After bottle-conditioning, this exclusive beer is ready for immediate enjoyment although it can be lovingly cellared for future festivities.

As we release 3,000 in January 2013, we hoist our glasses in thankful toast to YOU our dearest friends in beer!

ineedbeer (2075) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 3, 2017
Poured from a 22 oz bottle. Aroma is very malty with lots of dark caramel and toffee, chocolate, light roast, and leather. Moderate dark fruit notes with lots of raisin, plum, prune, fig and cherry. Some moderate red wine and light oak notes. Light alcohol spice. Light anise and clove notes. A bit of a meaty, soy sauce note. Pours dark brown to black with a large, fairly thick and creamy, light mocha head that exhibits good retention as it slowly recedes to a small film that lingers. Moderate lacing and medium long legs. Flavor is moderately sweet with a low bitterness. Moderately strong chocolate notes with some dark caramel and toffee. Light roast and leather notes. Moderately strong red wine notes with grapes, raisin, plum, prune and cherry. Some light oak notes. Some light anise and clove notes. Light meaty, soy sauce notes. Light alcohol spice. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium high carbonation. Low, but present astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, an odd beer and really no reason why this was called a barleywine instead of a stout. Malt profile is very dark and chocolate-y with some roast notes. Tons of dark fruit and red wine notes. I usually like some red wine character in my stouts, but this took it too far. I think the fruit also accentuates/contributes to the soy sauce/meaty note. Im a bit disappointed in this beer.

From notes. Enjoyed this at Mickeys 30th birthday bash on November 05. 22 oz bottle. The pour is a dark brown, bordering on black with a thick lighter tan head that doesnt do a whole lot as it sits there. The aroma is really interesting. There is a lot of Belgian malts, a light caramel and toffee influence, and a big red wine. There is a ton of vinousness that Im not crazy about. The flavor is similar. Lots of vinous grape and red wine character with the oak and maltiness. The mouth feel is a little thin and softly carbonated with a lingeringly sweet and vinous malty finish. Interesting beer, but I think it might be past its prime.

18/XI/16 - 1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle @ Sebs Farewell Tasting (Eugenes place) - BB: n/a (2016-1324) Thanks to Sebletitje for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark brown beer, small creamy beige head, pretty stable, little adhesive. Aroma: sweet, caramel, pretty roasted (nothing Belgian about that), sourish touch. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: bitter start, bit sourish, roasted, fruity notes, earthy, some coffee. Aftertaste: alcohol, pretty roasted, bit sweet, banana peel, caramel, more alcohol, some coffee. This one held up very well, since its been brewed over 3 years ago! Not a touch of oxidation to be noticed, except maybe that slightly acidic touch?

Thank you Sebletitje! Bomber sampled @ Sebletitjes Farewell Tasting. 2013 Vintage. Dark brown going to black with little tanned bbbles. Nose is quite herbal, sugar, thick warming, quite boozy, red grape fortified wine, porto, sugar, very boozy. Taste is warming this syrop de Lige, molasses, cane sugar, very herbal, quite boozy malts, huge red wine, porto, red grpae, very boozy. Body is boozy thick malt, syrup & porto. An odd one, wine is too upfront, simple, bit too herbal tasting for me. Not but not entirely my thing.
