What bird cannot fly AND cannot walk?? It is any penguin that finishes a bottle of this by himself. The Killer Penguin is a fine, limited release Barley Wine from Boulder Brewing Company. The color is a red / brown tone and pours with a tight head. The aroma is malty with caramel, toffee, and molasses tones. The flavor is caramel with tropical fruity notes and a touch of brown sugar. It has a great package and I think some aging will lower the sweeter tones and bring the fruity esters forward.
