Hammer of the Beast Imperial Stout and Barleywine Ale

Minuscule head pools in bubbles to the side like a stagnant river then reveals a spider-eyed were-jaguar, before a Turin shroud emerges against the blackest, hopeless night. Oh crap! Did I just unleash barleywine? Well it is cold as the ice king! Magnificence of aroma with basalt, crystalline vanilla, resinous myrrh, and rich dark chocolate! Cedar, tar, burnt vanilla, nutmeg, fennel, licorice and burnt brownie. Awesome! Truly a harbinger of spirit life and neutron star collision! #clownshoes #hammerofthebeast #barleywine #imperialstout #stout #beerpocalypse #dankbeer #darkbeer #beast #beastmode — 2 years ago

Old Backus Barleywine Ale

If grapes and river rocks had a baby. Roasted corn and freshly washed dog, green strawberries and fig newton. Perfection of balance for a barley. The sweetness is secondary, and that is just right! The acidity loans a deft touch. Creamy and short on the caramel, there is an applewood point, and an alluvial depth. Thanks to Josh for bringing this Lawrence gem to the Sunshine State! #barleywine #freestate #kansas #agedbeer — 4 years ago
