Old Guardian Barleywine

 
RATING
82

Rich caramel dominates Old Guardian’s aroma, inundating toasted bread and dank hop scents with sticky sweetness. On the tongue, this boozy barleywine splashes down with toasted bread and a hefty dose of caramel; zesty orange pops through the thick malts. Despite the bold flavors, hot alcohol and aggressive bitterness quickly overtake the tongue and push the swallow toward a harsh, unbalanced finish. A few years in the cellar should calm this beer down and make room for its flavors to shine.
