RateBeer.com -- Correct Dock Street Barrel Aged Barley Wine Dock Street Barrel Aged Barley Wine


Description:
This Dock Street Barley Wine has been lovingly hand bottled straight from the barrels and bottle-conditioned by our brewers. The carbonation was left intentionally low so you can taste how it did pulled right from the cask. Dock Street Barleywine Style Ale is brewed with the best of both American and English traditions in mind. We stuff so much malt into our mash-tun, it canít possibly hold any more. Itís hopped in the kettle with copious amounts of Brewerís Gold and English East Kent Golding hops, to a bracing 76 IBUís. Its massive maltiness and tremendous bitterness are partnered with the burn from its 10.5% ABV. All of these intense individual characteristics are married through extended aging at cellar temperatures. This very special batch of our immense ale has been tempered by 10 months of quiet aging in oak barrels that had previously been the home of Chadds Ford Pinot Noir wine. The result is a sensual synthesis of the worlds of beer, oak and wine. The aromatics leave the drinkers to believe that they are about to taste a port wine or brandy. The malt is the true star here, with the bitterness of the hops dying away to reveal flavors of coconut, caramel and rum. It all comes together with a slightly acidic and tannic woody finish. The initial hint of alcohol slowly fades into a warming burn.
