Barrel-aged ale is not new. It is a centuries-old tradition, from a time when barrels were thought of simply as the containers in which ale was stored and transported from brewery to tavern. Our experiments at Anchor, however, revealed that a carefully considered blend of our own ales, aged in-house in our own ex-Old Potrero handmade oak barrels, results in a unique, complex, and delightfully new tradition: Our Barrel Ale.
Available in 50.7-oz magnum bottles.

Double-Mag shared thanks to mrubio. (Don’t know vintage, but past prime). Lovely oxidation aroma. Murky brown, with lean body, nearly flat. Dusty flour nose, smooth whiskey dominates flavor, warming finish.

STRONG bourbon aroma. Pretty good taste, also heavy with the bourbon influence.
