Southern Tier Back Burner
Southern Tier Back Burner is an American Barleywine, this bottle has been aged about 1 year. Nice sweet malty profile to start with rich caramel and dark fruit flavors of prunes and figs. The hops seem to have dulled enough to balance the sweetness without being overpowering. This is a solid barleywine, it’s not loaded with nuance and complexity but it sure is tasty enough to pick up a bottle or two every year.
