Tilted Shed Barred Rock


Brewed by Tilted Shed Ciderworks
Forestville, California USA
Style: Cider | Ratings: 4 | Alcohol: -
Cold weather calls for savory sippers, and Barred Rock is the perfect winter warmer. A blend of late-season Sonoma County heirloom and cider apple varieties, aged for over 3 months in bourbon barrels. Heady butterscotch on the nose, plush mouthfeel, amaretto and vanilla notes, and a long, rich finish. This cider was fermented to dryness, no backsweetening, so your palate will experience all that the barrel aging has to offer, without any cloying effects. This is dessert in a glass, but itís also delectable with pumpkin pie, apple crisp, figs, anything with caramel and maple syrup. Oddly tasty with coffee, too! LET THIS WARM UP! 60 degrees or more, donít be afraid. The warmer, the more decadent.
