An avalanche of fourteen malts and fourteen hops plus brash 14% alcohol strength reinforce labyrinthine 14th anniversary barleywine celebrator. Heavy whiskey malting thickens lactic creaminess. Chocolate cake, Bacardi rum cake, and vanilla truffle decadence ensues. Sticky anise gets all over cocoa-buttered cookie dough center, cherry-pureed stewed prune swoon, and maple-oatmeal cereal graining. Wood-burnt hop roast embitters chewy mocha panorama.
