Hadn't made it through all the new Tree House's I got last week, so obviously the best beer I had this week was from them: Tree House Tree of Life
Description: This is honestly too complex for me to describe. It's syrupy, and reminded me a bit of dessert wine. It certainly has the booze for it (11.8%). Caramel and dark fruity flavors dominate, but there's a whole bunch more going on, and the flavor changes a bit as it warms.
What you should know: Unlike most Tree House beers, this one can actually be aged. Tree House is pretty new to barleywines (at least, new to actually releasing them), but as always, they do a fantastic job. I can't say for sure if I'm a barleywine guy now, or just a Tree House barleywine guy, but I'm definitely one of them.
Recommendations: If you can, try new style of beer this week. You might find a new favorite.
