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.

Sweet, malty, delicious. Booze soothes my throat without too much bite. Wish this were available on the shelves in NY.

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear copper orange with a small white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is caramel and brown sugar. Medium mouthfeel with sweett vanilla and light roasted malt with booze in the finish. Easy to drink a very impressive barley wine from Hoppin Frog.

Bottle shared at the Santa Cruz tasting in January. Forgive my paltry notes but this was the last beer of a long night. Basically this beer exudes banana-caramel sweetness with a rich backbone and plenty of heat. Mouthfeel stands out as very smooth and luxurious.

Awesome sample pour of deep honey/caramel with little to no head. Nose is boozy up front with plenty of caramel and sweet malts. Flavor is super intense!! Boozy and caramel up front with some buttery notes in the back, maybe butterscotch... Really amazing all around.

Bottle:   Deep amber, thin sudsy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Big, strong, candied fruit nose, heavy biscuit, caramel, toffee, and malty sweetness.   This appears to be an English style Barley Wine to the "T".   Very biscuity on the tongue, super sweet, heavy maltiness, fruity, both light and dark, soft whiskey like notes.   Overall a HUGE English Barley Wine.   Fairly full bodied.   Finishes almost sickly sweet but just shy of that.   One huge sweet malty and fruity Barley Wine that seems to have a subtle touch of whiskey.   If the whiskey were a bit more pronounced, it would have made it that much better, but as is its somewhat subtle.   Still very tasty and HUGE if you like English style Barley Wines!

Hazy amber beer, tidy cream coloured head. Semi dry palate. Fine carbonation. Sweet malt with pronounced dried banana and a little sweet caramel. Oaky vanilla and a little bourbon which is very sweet. Finishes with aniseed alcohol and alcohol heat. Pretty well joined up, a sweet barleywine. Banana!

2011 bomber into a snifter. Amber pour with a small ring of off white bubbles around the edge of the glass. Bourbon, vanilla, brown sugar, dark dried fruit and coconut on the nose. Malty sweetness followed by brown sugar, bourbon, coconut, dark fruit, banana and oak. Sweet but tasty! Full bodied with light prickly carbonation. This cellared very nicely! Too bad it was my last bottle. Great stuff!
