Old Crustacean Barleywine – Aged!

 

This bottle of Old Crustacean from Rogue Brewery has been in our beer fridge for a while.  It’s actually a 2008!  We took it to the beach with us recently to share with friends.  This thing had a mouth-feel almost like molasses; it was so thick!  Rich with age, this brew was sweet but the alcohol also permeated the tip of your tongue.  We really should have picked up a newer bottle to try along side this one, as I have a feeling that this beer was probably far superior to it’s little brother from this year.

I’m a sweet and malty fan, so I did enjoy this.  It was so rich though, I’m glad it was split between five people and I didn’t have a full pint glass as I wouldn’t have been able to finish it.  Goal for this winter:  pick up another Rogue Barleywine!
