Super Bowl Beer #2 - Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary Barleywine

Now we're talking!  I picked up this one at Martin Wine Cellar a few days back when I went hunting for the BrewDog Tokyo*.

This 10.2% abv dark barleywine is a boozy malt-bomb of delicious beer. Definitely heavy on the toffee and caramel malt flavors, but yet again, Sierra Nevada nails it with their 30th Anniversary series. I've tried 3 of the 4 30th Anniversary beers so far, and all were superb, as most of Sierra Nevada's beers tend to be.

My Rating: A
BeerAdvocate: A-
