"I'm sitting here enjoying another bottle of the 2012 Holidale. These folks have come up with a very big, pretty well balanced barleywine this time. Very drinkable immediately but with enough oomph to last a long time (meaning that I'm going to put a few bottles back to age).
Nice dark gold color. Almost microscopic bubbles giving a long-lasting head.
Aroma and flavor of hops and malt. Interesting hop aroma and flavor because they used locally-grown hops that give citrus, resin, fall leaves, and earth notes. (The citrus and resin notes are reminiscent of Cascades hops but are quite subdued by comparison......more orange than grapefruit for instance.)
Drinking this at cool room temperature (65F?) makes the malt quite apparent: big, mouth-filling, rich, and complex. It almost balances the hops - making it an American-style barleywine.
Thed alcohol is definitely present but does not overpower any of the other ingredients.
In all, quite a good beer for a winter evening ...... but certainly not a session beer. This 22 oz bottle shall be enough for now."
