COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Style Barleywine with very complex flavors of raisin, toffee, chocolate and subtle smokiness. The aroma of this beer is also fruity with notes of citrus and passionfruit from the use of Galaxy Hops from Australia. This wort was boiled for an extended time frame to promote smoothness and drinkability in a strong ale. The use of Malaysian Gula Malacca sugar was used to increase the sugar concentration and provide some unique Asian flavors. Bare Knuckle Barleywine is a very limited release beer that should be savored when sipping from a wine glass in the darkness of Winter.
