COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We took many extra steps to make this intense hoppy American-style barleywine to celebrate 10 years of brewing some of the most flavorful beers in the world. Selecting from the best hops this planet has to offer and Bourbon-barrel aging for 6 months was just the beginning for us. Then we went the extra mile and dry-hopped Barrel Aged In-Ten-Sity afterwards for a really great, fresh hop aroma. This hard work pays off creating a well-balanced barleywine with tons of character that will stand the test of time. Happy birthday to us, and cheers to you.

It pours amber with a rue head. It has a brown head with the head retention being low. It has a strong malty rich aroma to start. There are some citrus aromas with floral elements and a spice. There are also aromas of dark fruits resembling plums and raisins. The malt aromas have caramel, molasses, and a bit of chocolate. The flavors are highlighted by caramel, a bit of chocolate, and molasses. There are citrus notes including orange. There are other flavors including plums and raisins and a bit of roast, spice, and a bit of sherry. The bourbon flavors are blended in well with the other flavors. It has a full body that is slightly syrupy. There is a good balance between malts and hops with the bourbon flavors enhancing the combination. Overall, an excellent barleywine that has good balance and features bourbon flavors without them being overbearing.
