Westside Brewers Collective Barleywine Ale by ENKI

WSBC Barleywine Ale represents a true partnership, crafted using ingredients favored by representatives of each of the eight brewers in the West Side Brewers Collective. This American Barelywine is dry hopped with classic American Chinook and Cascade hops, which provide a piney, spicy and citrus aroma, somewhat similar to pine sap. The flavor is of dark caramel, toffee and earthy spices with an assertive hop flavor and bitterness that blends well with the huge malt backbone and big ABV, which will leave you with a healthy warmth. The beer is full bodied and chewy with a velvety, luscious texture. Dependent on the brewery's clarification methods, the beer ranges from brilliant to a tad hazy, but consistently is deep amber in color and moderate carbonation leaving a light tan to copper head. 7.0 ABV, 99 IBUs
