About This Beer
With three gold and two silver GABF medals, Old Numbskull is one of the most awarded brews of all time! That’s freakin’ impressive. And it’s exactly what AleSmith did with today’s Barleywine! You read that right.
Take a sip, and you’ll understand why. Layers of rich malty sweetness fold into notes of dried dates and brown sugar. A kiss of marmalade follows before finishing with a touch of balancing bitterness from the addition of domestic hops. And the whole thing’s swaddled in a velvety-smooth full-bodied mouthfeel that will have you coming back for more.
Malty Sweet Rich Boozy
Hopped up, just like SN Bigfoot!
Excellent balance in aroma between toffee, caramel and am herbaceous hop. Slight cherry tootsie pop. Thin body but intense with great toffee, cherry and very subtle biscuit. Herbal, green tea bitter creeps in to put all to a halt
Strong boozy aroma... Beautiful caramel color...very smooth with strong notes of toffee and caramel. Little bit more bitter than I would like.
solid barley wine, but lacks subtlety and definition
the after taste killed it for me
