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.

Bottle HUGE thanks to my summer secret santa! Pour has an orange red amber thing going on and a ring of white bubbles around the glass. Aroma has malts, big barrel influence, vanilla, sweet bourbon, oak, dark fruited touches, and sweet custard. Very nicely done with a nice richness and complementing sweetness. Mouth feel is a medium and there is low side carbonation but not much. Flavor has a bit more malt, big sweetness, custard, vanilla, oak, dark fruit, and bourbon. The belgian yeast adds less spice than expected and there is a bit of earthy esters mixed in with alcohol heat.

650 ml bottle @ PBF IX (vertical with the original version). Pours a dark amber colour with a small head. Aroma of rich bourbon wooden notes, wet earthiness and some herbal notes. Rich flavour of sweet maltiness, bourbon, tart wooden notes, green apples, herbal notes and spiciness. Full bodied with smooth mouthfeel. Sweet and elegant. Much better than the original non-BA version.

Bottled@PBF IX. Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is liquorice, mild glue, some slight alcohol as well as ripe fruits. Flavour is alcohol, some mild glue, ripe fruits and some wooden notes. OK balance, but alcohol is a bit too evident.

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.

tiong (3724) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
650ml bottle @ PBF IX

Vertical with Sweet Evil - Pours dark orange with a smooth head, slightly darker than Sweet Evil. Aroma of caramely malts, toffee, wood, oak, vanilla, yeast, whiskey and ripe fruits. Taste is sweet, woody, oaky, caramely and stuffy with notes of vanilla, toffee and ripe fruits. Finish is sweet, sticky and woody with oaky notes, vanilla, toffee and ripe fruits. Sweeter than Sweet Evil, but in a different way, and this has more body and is more complex, so I prefer this.
