Cheers to big beer. Easily the best beer of the night. Still so much going on, even after 9 years or so in the cellar.Earned the Photogenic Brew (Level 37) badge! Earned the 99 Bottles (Level 4) badge! Earned the Wheel of Styles (Level 24) badge!
2013 aged 7 years. Big malty, dark fruit, slight caramel, slight spice nose. Malt, roast, smoke, light caramel. Nice bitterness, slight herbal character. Great carb after 7 years. Could still go for years.
I think this is a 2013-ish batch. Kind of like a blend of old ale and American barleywine at a 1.5:1 ratio, more caramel but some light hop bitterness. Then a touch of peat tobacco moves in, but not too much. Drinking and aging well.Earned the Old is New (Level 5) badge!
