Belgian Barley Wine, aged in a single scottish whisky barrel with wood chips from old sherry casks. Only 620 bottles total. Not all beers are as fortunate as this one. Normally a beer will be brewed, bottled, shipped, bought and then drunk. Not necesarily a long lifespan. But this belgian style barleywine was lucky. Is was the chosen one. Specificaly selected for a priviliged life, it was moved to an oak barrel and was able to hide there for seven months. Nobody would disturbe it as it reveled in its luck. Now though, it has been bottled and bought, but it has had the time to get ready to be drunk by you.

Poured from a bottle, thanks to Craig. A pleasant coffee and toffee character. I am overwhelmed with hot alcohol notes, nail polish. Dry finish.

thewolf (11101) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle, bought @ YNWA Beershop, Kolding.
Pours deep brown with a medium, staying, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has vanilla, clear sherry, doughy malts, plums, mild floral. Soft whiskey notes. Highish carbonation, oily and mildly dry mouthfeel. Flavour has mild metal at first from the carbonation, then mild oaky, light roasted malts, soft chocolate. The sherry is apparant and mellows the viniousness. Soft oaky bitterness at the end. Interesting, but ultimately a bit flawed.
