Tröegs Brewing Company – Flying Mouflan (American Barleywine)

  • 9.30% ABV
  • Well like always I was wrong about something I thought I knew… Barelywines’s are awesome. Well I have only had 2 of them but I really liked them both. I assumed a barleywine would be super malty, almost like a stout. But at least this one has a noticeable hop taste to it. The only down side I would point out is that the ABV is a little high and you can taste it. It isnt so bad that I am stressing it but… It is there.

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery – My Antonia (Imperial Pilsner)

  • 7.50% ABV
  • The combination of this being a Imperial and brewed by Dogfish had me kind of nervous. Dogfish doesnt screw around with strange beers but this is actually something I could give to a Bud drinker with out them getting all shitty about it tasting like a weird craft beer. It by no means tastes like a Coors but you can tell it is a pilsner. Just a really good one.

Stone Brewing Company – Stone Old Gaurdian (American Barleywine)

  • 12.00% ABV
  • Well this is my second Barleywine and I have to say I am liking them. Yes they are strong as hell but I am liking the hardcore malt in them. Yes the ABV is noticeable but it isnt detracting from the taste, all tho it might be because the malt is so strong… Strong and delicious. God damn it I am going to divorce M1 and marry Stone Brewery!
  • + Buy again (But for the love of Cthulhu be careful with it)
