Beer | Dogfish Head Olde School Barleywine

It might run counterintuitive to split a 12-ounce bottle of beer with a friend, but this is not beer, it is 15-percent ABV Dogfish Head Olde School Barleywine. Break out a pair of snifters, because true to form, Dogfish has fermented this powerful fucker with dates and figs—subtle additions that made it perfect for Thanksgiving sipping. “Over time, the beer dries out,” we are told, “the pit fruit flavors come forward and the hops recede.” So yeah, you can cellar the stuff or, as the bottle suggests, bury it in the yard until next year.
