It’s an odd sensation in your nostrils during the cold winter months: rotten apricots. But the most delicious rotten fruit could hope for.
2005 was a fruity year for Barleywines and Dicks Brewing made sure to capture the essence of sweaty pears, moist apples and rotten mandarine oranges. 4 years ago I was enduring the blight of cold and snow of Northern MN at this time, desperately unlucky to be unaware of barleywines. NO LONGER! All things dreary and bleak melt away from you like an ice auger buzzing through frozen Lake Bemidji…or yer tum tum. Naturally, battle for that HUGE northern pike will tire you out and you’ll need some liquid confidence to see it through to the bitter, curse-filled, finger-slicing end.
So while yer nose turns bright red because you think Seattle is “cold” in the winter—consider absorbing some Vodka through your feet and some ‘05 via yer mouf.
