Semi-related: anyone see the write up on GQ's blogs about barleywines?

I just found this at Surdyk's.... I think it'll do...

Anyone ever had Avery Samael’s Ale. Esau's favorite drink

Beer Style: Oak Aged English Strong Ale
Hop Variety: Columbus, Fuggels
Malt Variety: Two-row barley, caramel 150L
OG: 1.140 * ABV: 14.5 * IBUs: 41
Color: Copper

Samael’s Ale is a super-caramelly, oak aged English-style strong ale. Perhaps the least hoppy (sacrilege here at Avery!!) beer we’ve brewed, to accentuate the malt. The oak is very apparent in this rich and high gravity ale, adding additional depth and complexity with a woody and cask-like nose and a pronounced vanilla flavor on the palate. Notes for 2007 - With the addition of an additional roasted malt, Samael's now delivers subtle bitterness to add balance to the natural sweetness.

Avery Samael’s Ale is a tasty brew. It's a BIG beer @ 14.5% so beware. It's also a lil pricy @ around 8-10 bucks for 1 12oz bottle. If you can get Avery in your area look for Hog Heaven it's a very nice barleywine but does have some prominent hop bitterness & flavor.

The Avery is $8/12oz, so yeah a bit pricey, but if I like it, I can make it for far less...

I recently had Victory's Old Horizontal and really enjoyed it.

I've searched high and low, and I still can't find Sierra Nevada's Bigfoot in my area (think it's coming next week). Then again, that's on the hoppier side of things.

Can you get Three Floyds? Behemoth is one of my favorites (though may be hoppier than you're looking for).

Bonus: If the wax is silvery-blue or green, I dipped it.

a few years ago Three Floyds was available here but for only 1 year then no more. Robert The Bruce scottish ale is/was one of the best beers i have ever had.
