Midnight Sun TREAT

The Royal Eccentric Ale Treatment. One last pumpkin ale to close out the season. Smells like chocolate and coffee and has massive pumpkin flavor.

A solid disappointment. Boo

Avery Hog Heaven Barleywine

1212092332.jpg

Extremely hoppy. Much more like an IPA than a Barleywine, but still good.

The Lost Abbey Angel's Share

downsized_1212092330.jpg

Delicious Angel's Share. Heavy with lots of flavor! It's a slow drink, though...and not quire worth the hefty price.

Ignore the photo of the Green Flash Barleywine in the background

Green Flash Barleywine

Kolbe's 2008 contribution to the cellar. Good, but probably landing in the middle of the pack.

Nørrebro Bryghus Little Korkny Ale

downsized_1212092109.jpg

A crazy-tasting barleywine from Denmark with some fruity plum flavors.

Port Townsend Barleywine

downsized_1212092105.jpg

Justin's 2008 contribution to the cellar. Good, but nothing to write home to mom about.

Baron Rumpelstiltskin Rauch Doppelbock

downsized_1212092046.jpg

This beer is past it's prime. It still had some great smoky smells with a hint of tartness. But when tasted the tartness overwhelms as this beer was likely bottled poorly to have soured so quickly.

Hale's Ales Rudyard's Rare Barleywine

downsized_1212092020.jpg

Brandon's contribution to the 2008 cellar. A great barleywine from local Hale's Ales!
