COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Barley Wine Style Ale is a big beer made with six different malts (Pale Ale, Crystal, Caramunich, Wheat, Chocolate and Roasted Barley) and balanced with a very full hop charge of Summit, Challenger and Fuggles hops. It is a deep reddish brown color with a complex fruity nose, a very full body, and an interesting balance between grains and hops which ends with a pleasing dry taste. To fully enjoy all the flavors, this ale is best drunk at 55 degrees Fahrenheit. 8.5% alcohol by volume.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2008
Dark brown, bright. Fairly buttery (natch) with caramel and earth. Harsh astringency in terms of the malt/alcohol character makes it tough to drink. There is quite a bit of alcohol late and more butter. I was saddened by this brew.
