This Barrel-Aged version of our American Barleywine Ale is matured in premium bourbon barrels for up to one year to develop its rich and intense flavor profile. The result is an amazingy complex beer that balances the caramel and toasted malt character of the Old Numbskull with notes of vanilla, oak, and bourbon from the barrel aged process. Savor this one now or continue to age it in the bottle for years to come.

Barley wine rating #50! Bottle 75cl at Dangerous Bottleshares WHLZBRZ edition. Pours a hazy, rusty amber with a medium sized, off white head. Aroma has looots of bourbon! Vanilla, coco nut, fudge, caramel, still some fruity hops, lots of figs, dates and prunes. Taste is sweet with vanilla, lots of dried fruits, fudgy caramel, boozy bourbon, slight hoppy finish. Average carbonation and a full, sticky body. Great barley wine!

Lukasmh (780) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours an all dark brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is a bourbon bomb. Packed with toffee, vanilla, coconut, so rich, coffee, chocolate, toast, prunes, dark fruits. This beer is all changed. Taste is like drinking bourbon without the booze. Vanilla, wood, coconut, dark fruits, toffee, caramel, light bitter chocolate, burnt malts. Full body, toasty finish, very subtle hops. Just very well executed and drinkable. Warming feel.

Bottle. Dark brown in color with an off-white head. Oaky wooden notes, some fruityness and vanilla too in aroma. Some sweeter notes such as toffee appears later on together with some malty vibes. Nice indeed. Wood, vanilla and toffee in taste. Smooth one. Bourbon and dried fruityness in the end. A warmer even if you hardly notice the abv here. Good brew.
