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.

BlackHaddock (4115) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2014
What a fantastic beer: shared 650ml bottle on 23rd Aug 2014 at the Midlands meeting. This is what a bottle share is all about, trying stuff you’ll never normally see and finding something like this. The sour Stout before this was not to my taste but this beauty was awesome and my beer of the day. Dark orange hue to the body, not much head, orangey/white in colour. The nose was sweet malts, rich dark fruits and vanilla. My taste buds loved the oaked bourbon mellowness combined with the sweetness from the malts, caramel and toffee hints blending into the rich dark fruity flavours. Lovely and smooth, very, very drinkable.

Bottle @ Midlands Tasting Group Aug 14, at Richie’s Hop Palace. Pours deep amber with off-white head. Another great big Hoppin Frog beer. Sweet and strong with a strange, slick mouthfeel. Whisky, oak, vanilla, ripe hedgerow fruits & cassonade. A big boozy barnstormer of a beer.

65cl bottle @ PBF Ⅸ
Vertical with Belgian-style Barley Wine-style Ale
Aroma is sweet with caramel and some whisky tones. Flavour is rather sweet and heavy with whisky tones, caramel, some warming alcohol and . This is better, I’d say. The whisky notes make this more complex and balanced - it eats the disturbing sweetness.
