Anchor Old Foghorn ....

Today I will sample an Old Foghorn, Barleywine Style Ale, from Anchor Brewing Company.  8.8% ABV is listed on the twelve ounce bottle.

Old Foghorn poured with a medium, tan colored head.  Beer color is a darker copper.  The aroma is sweet, with brown sugar, caramel, dark fruit and a hint of the higher alcohol.  The alcohol really stands out in the taste.  There is also dark fruit, caramel, molasses and malt.  Some nice hops balance it out, but never really make it to bitter.  Taste is not as sweet as the aroma.  Leaves you with a dry, not quite bitter aftertaste.
