Rogue: XS Old Crustacean Barleywine
wtf is this? so fucking bitter, so hoppy. so weird. totally not feeling this one… well, im feeling it the 750ml @ 11.5% ABV.
it is intense.. but im not feeling any balance from the bitterness. it did start to grow on me, but it could be just cuz i was hell of loaded. OH WELL /drunk
the wife does not like this beer one bit. its really complex, thats for sure, and very dessert-like. but i personally think it has some serious savory notes (first thought i had was “hmmm cheese?!”) But it is mosdef a dessert style beer, more sweet and chocolaty than not, but im having it for my starting course.
Tasting Notes: Port Salut, Cranberry, Sunsets, Sunn Amps
"Listen, you fuckers, you screwheads. Here is a man who would not take it anymore. A man who stood up against the scum, the cunts, the dogs, the filth, the shit. Here is a man who stood up!"
this beer is a liquid form of travis bickle… maybe not, but thats exactly the quote that came to my mind the second i tasted this. a strong punch and a strong ale; malted and seasoned, with a long lasting after taste of hops. im not really a barelywine expert, but im loving the big carbonation and big alcohol content
