December 12th: Trainwreck Barley Wine

12. Trainwreck

Story:

This locomotive of flavour was born in 2010 and is brewed closer to an English barley wine style, which is a bit sweeter and darker than the American variant.  In order to experience the full complexity of this beer it’s best to allow Trainwreck to warm up a little bit to cellar temperature (10C).  Also, at 10% chugging is not recommended on this train.

Tasting Notes:

Pours a deep amber colour with a slight white head.  Providing a boxcar of big malts and rich, caramel aromas, Trainwreck will run you around the corner on two wheels.

Availability:

Trainwreck is only available in this Snowcase Pack!

  2. I have never tried a barley wine beer before today – I have also NEVER poured a beer down the drain after 3 sips before today – would not try this again

  3. I love maltsh .. Sheez soo sweet, sooooooo taashtee. And I was done after 1 . .. A better barley wine than I have ever tasted. Still has not beaten the Shottlewizen for best in box though.. So excited every day for the nights offering.

  4. Has anyone tried Thor’s Hammer from Central City. A comparable beer if you liked this one. Me, can’t say it’s my favourite, but I had some younger folks over the other day (all of age, mind you!) and they LOVED it. Best in the box is still Shottlewizen for me………

  5. The high gravity Phillips beers (like this one) are almost always very well done, well attenuated and not treacly/syrupy at all. Very nice barley wine. If you poured this out, you have no palate for beer.

  6. Admit I was forced to drink to one out of order because of various reasons, one of which was the high alcohol content. Big fan of barley wines and this one tops the charts now having bumped the one from Grizzly Paw.

    Too bad it’s not available every Christmas in a bomber as I’d make the drive to BC to get this.
