Bootleggers Brewery – Bootleggers Galaxian Barleywine – 22 oz.bottle poured into a goblet. 10% abv.
Appearance: Pours a dark amber with no head and just a few swirls appear when looking down.
Aroma: Fruity notes(cherry, apple grape), Turbinado sugar, and a little alcohol.
Taste: Caramel, burnt sugar, dates, dried mango. Bitter hops. Very tropical like Knuckle Sandwich!
Mouthfeel: Full bodied. From growler, so the carbonation was a little on the high side. It mellowed out when I let me glass warm up.
Overall: A really tasty west coast barleywine. I would only consider drinking this fresh personally. It’s very close to the highly acclaimed Knuckle Sandwich, so if you like that, you will love this.
