Old Godfather pours a light amber with a beige lacing. Aromas of fresh pine and citrus dominate, giving way to deep flavors of nutty maltiness and burnt caramel. A spicy hop bite of citrus peel rounds out the rich mouthfeel. Bittersweet English malts and cut-throat West Coast hops make Old Godfather a barleywine that is not to be taken lightly. As a brazenly robust brew, Old Godfather will benefit from years of cellaring, developing new refinements in character over time.
