Torrside American Barleywine was rated as one of the best bottled beers of 2016 by numerous bloggers – and standards haven’t slipped one bit for this 2017 edition.
The beer pours a dark, almost brown amber with a thin white head.
Marmalade and toffee apples combine in an enticing aroma, and to taste there’s lots of resinous pine bitterness from the insane levels of hopping.
Enjoy this now to get the best of the hops, or keep it a while to mellow and mature those toffee fruit flavours into something wonderful and complex.
Its up to you, but we’re sure you’ll enjoy it either way.
