Probably my favorite non barrel aged BW.
If we are including Old Ales and similar styles, especially BA versions, then two of my favorites are:
One of my favorite aspects of BA barleywines and old ales is that they are perfect beers (IMO) to pair with a good cigar.
Two year old Arctic Panzer Wolf is a pretty mean Barleywine.
But serious it should be mentioned Bells Third Coast Old Ale is spectacular with a few years on it, I've been digging hard on it lately.
Love that beer. Had an '10 on tap last spring
Can't believe this one hasn't been mentioned yet:
Dammit, I wish CCB or other Tampa breweries would get back on english barleywines. That little six-month interlude we had with Church-BA Church-Leon was an exciting time for me. I absolutely love the style.
This was my first love as far as barleywines go
became obsessed after that. I wish I had more than just the 2 bottles of this left.
Here are some others that I'm a big fan of
readily available and really good, especially with a year on it.
Too lazy to dig through my pictures for the others, but Sucaba, MOAS, Old Foghorn and Uinta Cock Eyed Cooper all make me wonder if trading for barleywines is even necessary when those are all easy to come by in my neck of the woods.
YES! Such a delicious beer.
Couldn't agree more. Absolutely delicious beer and thought it was the best out of the bunch of BW's that they released in the last year or so.
wut r u doing up at Brett o'clock???
You lifting folk are crazy mo-fos...
I wish. At work already prepping for the day.
If we are bringing Old Ales into the mix I opened up a 2005 Brandy Old Stock with some folks 9 months ago or so and it was extrememly tasty. I've been looking to acquire a 2005 Bourbon just to see how it compares to the Brandy.
I think I'm double fisting
I feel the same way as you mostly, except sub 2012 BCBS for parabola.
Lot of English Style BW love in this thread, but where's the love for Bigfoot?! A regular release I look forward to every single year.
Enjoyed one of last year's just the other night. Avery Hog Heaven is another American-style barleywine I enjoy quite a bit.
I feel like I've been remiss in tracking down a number of barleywines that have escaped me or I just havent gotten around to opening. Some are Gratitude, Arctic Devil, BA Hi Fi, Sebago Barleywine, Bligh's, BA Bigfoot, etc. Also I need to try Kuhnhenn BBBW again since last time I dont exactly, uh, recall tasting it.
Here's some pron of a recent one I really enjoyed:
