COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made to Celebrate Founders 15th Anniversary, Bolt Cutter Barley Wine is an American barley wine that pours deep copper color and is strong, sweet and malt-forward, with a spicy complexity. Typical of the style, it is very cellarable. The final product is a blend using beer that was aged in Bourbon barrels, some from aged maple syrup Bourbon barrels and some from standard fermentation. After blending, the beer was allowed to mature in bottles and kegs for a few months before releasing.

Aroma has chewy caramel malts, strawberry, light toasted, mild vinious, citrus, a light pepper touch. Medium to low carbonation, wonderful creamy and fat mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, lots of caramel, blackberries, strawberry, vinious, warming. Had they obtained this flavour at 11% it would have been magnificent. Now it is ’just’ very good.
