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.

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!
