SF Beer Week – Freudian Slip Barleywine (Evil Twin Brewing)

10.3% AV
Purchased at The Trappist in Oakland and poured into wine glasses.

His Notes:

This “American-style” barleywine from Danish brewers Evil Twin pours muddy brown with an enormous, off-white head.  The nose has as many roasted coffee and grass notes as the expected wood, hard alcohol, and molasses aromas.  It has little of the syrupy sweetness of most American barleywines, but rather cords of wood (especially dry, smoke-able woods like hickory and apple), pepper spice, smoky peat moss, and under-roasted coffee beans. Freudian Slip is meditative, rather bizarre, and not entirely successful in its’ ambitions, but it does provide strong and earthy flavors that are unfailingly intriguing.
