Delicious barleywine. Light fruit, lots of great depth and layers of flavor. The booziness is very faint for its ABV. Glad I bought two bottles.
River North is pretty solid!
Great flavor. Thick and easy to drink. One of the best beers I’ve ever had.
Tastes like barley wine.
Gimme allllll the bwizzle
This is what I want in a barley wine. Rich, malty,with a little booziness. Quite drinkable.
Bucket of bolts is an appropriate name for this beer. Definitely doesn’t act like a barleywine. More like a Belgian Dubbel to me until it warms a bit, and then the barleywine emerges. Malty, sweet and smooth. Nice!
Super solid barleywine, just the right amount of hop bitterness, well balanced malts... AND hides the ABV well. Well done River North! p.s. this comes across closer to an American Barleywine, imo.
I love barley wines, so I still enjoyed this but honestly it was one of my least favorite in recent memory. Starts off with the characteristic warmth of a barley wine but quickly drops off to an uninteresting mild bitter aftertaste
Slight metal taste. Not great. Gonna age my bottle for 18 months
Hint of caramel goes well with the malt heaviness of the beer.
should have aged it
Very smooth. Great taste. Pleasantly surprised. A must try.
