Description: This is a beer brewed in Amsterdam but with our American friends from Marz Brewing, Chicago, and named after the neighbourhood where their own brewery is based. Unsurprisingly, there is a heavy American influence here. Which means a lot of hops, American hops. Nonetheless, their bitterness is beautifully balanced with the equally significant amount of malt a barley wine naturally requires. There is plenty of roasted and caramalt in the rich malt base of this deep, dark, glowing beauty. This American barley wine has a full, soft, rich but very balanced taste. To top it all off, there is a rich, full, creamy layer of foam.
