Second Runnings Club Brew

Brewed 12/4/11
Kegged 1/25/12
The primary beer style was American Barleywine. This was just the second runnings (some would call it parti-gyle) after the initial sparge was finished. Even with the addition of De Smet hops, this is a fairly decent brew. Malty, with hops heavier than I normally prefer, but still good. If I were to place this in a style, I would call it an IPA.
