COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This has proved to be a very interesting edition of Barrel Aged Decadence. The 2008 batch, an English-style barleywine aged in bourbon barrels, took on a pleasant sourness. Such quirks of nature can provide intriguing drinking experiences, like the many excellent wild ales being produced today. We think you’ll enjoy this delightfully unconventional offering.

Sample @ AleSmith during the release of BA Speedway and 2008 BA Decadence. Pours a mostly clear deep caramel brown with a faint reddish hue, small off white head. Brew takes on more characteristics of wine barrels than bourbon. Some oak tannins with faint bourbon notes and light caramel sweetness, also, a pleasant little tartness in both the nose and on the palate.
