COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English style barleywine aged in Angels Envy bourbon barrels. Brewed with enough Maris Otter pale, Aromatic and caramel malts to nearly overflow our mash tun. We then balanced this beer with some English Nugget and Kent Goldings hops. The resulting ale was sweet, nutty and powerful, but we didnt stop there. The entire batch was put into used Angels Envy barrels for nearly 3 months to gather the residual bourbon flavor and some aromatic and drying oak notes. By the way, Balling is a measurement of specific gravity.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Maxs place. Thanks Max. Hazy amber. Aroma of malt, caramel, vanilla, coconut, bourbon, alcohol, stale hops. Sweet flavor, boozy, with malt, caramel, vanilla, coconut, some fruitiness, and bitter stale hops. Kinda one-dimensional and too boozy.

It pours clear bronze with an off white head. The aroma has big caramel, toasted malt, English yeast and some bourbon. It has a smooth full body with light carbonation. The taste has the aroma notes with a bit more booze and bourbon. The roundness of Angles Envy is there as well. Really nice barleywine.

Can from State line. I assume it is from 2016. Pours dark amber with a ruby red hew. Aroma is home stove top hard candy my depression era grand mother used to make it, corn sugar, roasted malt, boozy notes, and a touch of smoke. Finish is mild bourbon, sweet malt, honey, slight unmalted barley.

hrabren (1144) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 5, 2017
0.33 l bottle from Svijet piva, Zagreb. Shared with Vinja 666 and Tanja 669. Brown, oily, minimal head, sediment. Heavy barrel & bourbon, light vanilla, light fruity. Strong and whiskey-like, not to aggressive. Medium body, soft, oily structure, medium whiskey finish. Not very interesting, but very well made.

070117. Can at home (Brewdog web shop). Pours slight hazy brown with a small head. Aroma ripe fruit, raisins, some caramel malts and hops. Nice sweet barley taste. A hint of alcohol on the tongue, but really nice otherwise. Just gets better as it warms up. Not Bad.
