COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On a recent trip through Belgium visiting the monastery breweries, we discovered an excellent barrel aged ale that had an incredibly satisfying flavor combination. Aging in oak barrels added a memorable richness, that we seek to achieve with this barrel aged Belgian-style barley wine-style ale. Being the ideal celebration beer to release on our 5-year anniversary, Barrel Aged Naked Evil is fermented with both British and Belgian yeasts and aged in whiskey barrels for a lightly spicy twist on this old-world beer style. Sweet malt flavors will become smoother and rich dark fruit characters will build with time to add a wonderful complexity and depth of flavor.

Pours an amber-orange with a short white head. The aroma has dark fruit, malt, bourbon, oak, and vanilla. The flavor is sweet malt and dark fruit and malt up front with a sweet middle of bourbon and vanilla and a bittersweet oaky finish over a medium, almost flat body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz bottle shared with the group (November 2011). Pours a clear amber/copper color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have big sweet caramel and toffee malt, vanilla, barrel, dark fruit, almost like an alcoholic Dum Dum sucker in a bottle. Sticky and moderately viscous. The first batch was a real treat.

A- poured very aggressive with about a 1in tan head and is a very nice red with small particles floating around. Head dissipated rather quickly. S-Sweet caramel malts come across nicely but its about the only thing that i can pick up. T-heavy sweetness but it doesnt come across as cloyingly with a strong malt backbone. M-medium body, thin creamy feel. O- A+ this is an amazing beer very well done and im so sad that i only had 1 of these. I’m was blown away by almost every aspect of this beer.

2012 bottle to snifter. Got this in a trade last year and have had it in my fridge since. Pours a nutmeg brown color. Despite being stored upright, there are numerous yeast chunks suspended in this glass. They’re waking up and streaming bubbles throughout the brew. It’s like a mini brite tank in my hand. Sweet aroma of nectar and ice wine. Taste is sweet but also nutty. Nougat, dessert wine, and marshmallow flavors are joined by muted hop bitterness and a moderate level of booze for the style. Light bodied for the ABV and a medium-hot finish. Tastes good but is a big beer. Very relaxing. I’m wondering if opening this at 10:30pm on a Tuesday was a good idea.

In celebration of rating #750... Pours dark amber with low off-white head. Aroma of thick caramel, butterscotch, nuts, just BRILLIANT! Taste is big, sweet with raisins, figs, dates. And some booze. But seriously, yum! Body is thick, sweet, alcohol sweet, rich, creamy. Just great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
