Greenflash Barleywine

This brew pours a vibrant orange with a quicly collapsing tan head that leaves a dearth of Brussels lace.  Greenflash Brewing Company Barleywine Style Ale is not hazy, but is so thick it is not perfectly clear.  There is a wonderful whiff of heavy carmel, alocohol and hops – INTENSE!  The rich mouthfeel prefaces a bittersweet and gut warming sensation as the first mouthful is swallowed.  Lots of bitterness and dryness in the finish.  As it warms, the bouquet reveals more carmel and butterscotch.  It’s like a doppelbock on steroids, and it’s $2.79 for a 22 oz. bottle, a bargain.  At 10.9% ABV, consider sharing with a friend.    75/100 barleywine
