“Evanscent Oak Character” Long ago, British farmhouse brewers made special ales using the first runnings of the mash. These beers, now called barley wine, are brewed in the tradition of days past. At Southern Tier this long awaited brew is placed on the back burner until the start of the new year. Back Burner Barley Wine is a celebration of things to come and things remembered. It’s conceived in three small batches, using voluminous amounts of barley and hops. The process starts early in the morning and ends late into the night. We hope this rare brew reignites your spirit for another trip around the sun.

Almost clear amber - brown beer. Tidy cream coloured head. Palate is semi soft with fine carbonation. Creamy malt with a little oaky vanilla but nowhere near as much as other Oak Aged Southern Tier beers. Some alcohol aniseed but no heat. Nice mellow hops - orange with a touch of mint. Finishes semi dry with jammy fruits coming to the fore. Hangs together very well. Very drinkable.
