East End Gratitude

East Side Gratitude11.5% ABV. Barleywine from East End Brewing Company in Pittsburgh, PA. I learned about this brew once looking at the top rated American barleywines and this came highly recommended. I ended up acquiring a bottle (batch #595 of 1500 bottles: Indigo wax). Pours burnt amber red. Sweet grape, caramel, and classic barley wine aromatics. Flavor of brown sugar, some cherries, and this reminded me of a muted/toned down version of Three Floyd’s collaboration with Mikkeller – Oatgoop. Thin mouthfeel with decent carbonation throughout. This brew actually tastes better when approaching room temperature. Overall, this brew was a little disappointing despite its high ratings. I expected more out of this one – complexity and delicious flavors such as peers – Sucaba, Mother of All Storms, King Henry, etc.
