On Rotation’s Mexican Barleywine Is Not Just A Barleywine, It’s A Pepper Beer, Too. [Central Track]

Mexican Barleywine review in Central Track

I have become a fan of pepper beers in the last year, so I am a fan of this beer. The beer is confusing, too, because the sweetness, caramel and richness of a barleywine is masked by ancho chile. It’s weird, but it’s good. This is not an all-nighter sort of beer, but it’s a good first beer. Plus, barleywine is a sipper style, and On Rotation seems to slow the drinking experience further with this lovely pepper addition. I can dig it.
