Lakefront Beer Line
Lakefront Beer Line is an American Barleywine. This was left for us at work from vacationing brewery rep Justin, thanks for the bottle! It is kind of hard to gauge the appearance from a third of a 12 oz bottle, but it looks a bit like a muddy Amber Ale. Not […]

Stone Old Guardian -Extra Hoppy- Barley Wine Style Ale
Stone Old Guardian -Extra Hoppy- Barley Wine Style Ale is a 2015 Odd Year release for Stone, and it looks they took this insanely hoppy beer style and made it “extra hoppy”. This pours with a nice dark reddish color with a nice off white head. Pineapple, pineapple and more pineapple on […]

21st Amendment Lower De Boom (Aged Two Years)
21st Amendment Lower De Boom is an American Barleywine. I have decided to do a four year experiment with this beer, since these little 8.4 oz cans should be easy to cellar. Originally canned in February of 2013 I drank the first can on April 1st 2013. I will drink […]

Dark Horse / Local Option Militiagan
I picked up this limited collaboration between Dark Horse and Local Option at the Dark Horse brewery during the summer of 2013. There is no bottle date but I am pretty sure this was pretty fresh when I bought it. Militiagan is referred to as a Potable Oak Wine, so […]

Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine 2012
Stone Old Guardian is an American style Barleywine. This review is for the 2012 vintage, aged for one and two years. The appearance and aroma of both tastings was pretty much spot on for the style. A rich caramel color with an off white head. Rich toffee and caramel on […]

Rogue XS Old Crustacean
Rogue XS Old Crustacean is an American Barleywine. This review is for the 2013 vintage, opened on Halloween Eve, 2014. This is one of the best smelling non-barrel aged Barleywines I’ve had the pleasure to get my nose into. Tons of luscious sweetness, getting caramel and brown sugar with each […]

Clown Shoes Crunkle Sam
Clown Shoes Crunkle Sam is an American Barleywine dry hopped with citra hops. As soon as I smelled and sipped this I knew this was a classic American Barleywine. The battle royal between hops and caramel malt is never ending. This pours a somewhat cloudy redish brown color. Fairly well balanced […]
