COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brew this in early January and start selling it the following November. It takes two times as much barley and hops to make a single batch of this very strong ale. The reason wine is in the name is because of the wine-like strength of 10 % alchohol

Beaver (1413) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a murky dark tea color with a thin off white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet molasses, cola and dark fruits with a little alcohol and green hops.

The flavor is sweet cola and caramel malts with dark fruits and a bitter hoppy alcohol finish. The mouthfeel is medium to a little thin and slightly watery (but not as bad as their other beers).

Overall, a very fine barley wine that is on the sweet side but well balanced. This is easily EP’s best brew.
