Wow, yet another review that was mysteriously deleted by the Alstrom brothers. You guys are a couple of... Wait, I better not or they will probably delete my account.
Anyway, this is a mix of their Wee Heavy, Barleywine and IPA aged on Stranahan barrels. Poured into a snifter from my growler. A nice rusty brown with a thin tan head. Has a great blend of sweet malts, oak and whiskey. Tasty stuff. Medium to full body drinks well.
Serving type: growler

From the tap, into a snifter.
Note that this is a blended ale of 50% barleywine, 25% porter, and 25% IPA, blended and aged in whiskey barrels.
Dark hazy brown, with ruby edges. No real head to speak of.
Sweet and boozy. Dark fruits and spicy hops are apparent right away, and about mid-whiff you notice whiskey as well.
The sweetness hits you along with the alcohol right away. Mild hop citrus is next, with a very balanced bitterness. The whiskey comes along next, with dark fruits and just a hint of banana, mixed in with some roast malt which serves to keep this from tasting too much like a sugar bomb.
Thick and chewy, and definitely the kind of drink that grabs the sides of your mouth and doesn't let go.
It's not as hoppy as a typical barleywine, but that serves me just fine, despite being kind of a hophead. The malt tastes are incredibly rich, and the flavor is incredibly complex. It's probably the best barleywine I've ever had, actually.
Serving type: on-tap
