    Sierra Nevada brews this ale in the style of a traditional barley wine: high in alcohol and high in flavour.

    Review and Tasting

    Sampled before 1st May 2011

    Appearance

    Clear, dark rusty red-brown colour with thin buff-coloured head.

    Aroma

    Malty nose of newly baked raisin bread with pine fresh aromas.

    Taste

    plentiful hops contributes piney, resinous flavours akin to retsina on top of heavily toasted malt sweetness, citrusy grapefruit juice and zest, toffee and coffee. Sour red grapefruit zest sourness and pine bitterness linger on the finish.

    Aftertaste

    Barley wine aficionados will love this hugely serious beer while most will probably find the high bitterness bit too much.
