Anchor Old Foghorn

CIMG2826

This barleywine uses only 2-row and Cascade hops, and hails from San Fran. I’ve always been a fan of their steam beer, but havn’t had much else.

Stats:
Barleywine. 8.8% ABV. California.

Dark caramel color with not much head.

Fairly typical barleywine aroma. Lots of sweetness, caramel, vanilla, alcohol, brown sugar, and some dark fruit.

Mouthfeel is alright, but more highly carbonated than most.

Lots of sweetness here, even for a barleywine. Again lots of caramel, dark fruits, brown sugar, baked apples, and a nice vanilla backend. Alcohol does show a bit when it’s warm.

Fairly straight-forward and typical barleywine. 89 points.
