Pike Old Bawdy Barley Wine (2007)

October 8th, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | No Comments | Filed in Brewer: Pike Pub, Country: America, Grade: B plus, Style: Barley wine

10% ABV from a bomber

Catching up on some old reviews, this is another bomber my friends brought back from their Seattle trip, one I split after having earlier in the evening shared the ass-kicking Old Viscosity. Probably not ideal circumstances but I still enjoyed this one very much. Pours a ruby red with no carbonation or head. Bold and malty, very alcoholic in taste and warms you up quite fast with tastes of Scotch, dried fruits, and maple. Certainly not for amateurs and I’m not even sure if my co-drinker finished his half of the bottle.

And that’s all I got to say about that. But lest you think I have writer’s block, I don’t, the Vice Blogger never gets writer’s block, I’m more prolific than Isaac Asimov. I’m simply sick and barely able to function. Someone* bring me some matzo ball soup, chamomile tea, a DVD of some mainstream comedy release that I am too smart to enjoy while my mind and body are firing on all cylinders but which I will find hilarious while sick, and come take care of me. I need to quickly regain my health, the world needs me to get into more hilarious adventures and offer my blustery prose to the masses…

B+
