Marin Old Dipsea Barleywine Bourbon Barrel (Brett)
Brewed by Marin Brewing Company
Larkspur, California USA
Style: Barley Wine | Ratings: 80 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 9%
"In May 2009 we brewed a special batch of Old Dipsea Barleywine and aged it for 10 months in 4 Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels. We added a special strain of wild yeast or brettanomyces to further ferment and add complexity. Youíll notice an extra fruity character resembling pineapple and a tanginess not found in our standard Old Dipsea. We have bottled 100 cases and wax sealed the crowns."
Editorís note: This batch can be identified from the the 2009 Heaven Hill and Old Fitzgerald releases by being released in 2010, being red wax dipped, with a white sticker that says "Bourbon barrel aged for ten months 2009."
2013 vintage - 10.8% abv
