COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
November 9, 2016
Back by popular demand this fall is our celebrated barley wine, which is aged in rye whisky and bourbon barrels from Few Spirits. This brew has experienced almost a cult following with many of the regulars in our tasting room! While last yearís batch used rye whisky barrels, this yearís release will be split between rye whiskey, bourbon, and wine barrels before being mixed together, so you can bet the flavor will be even more complex.

Very complex brew - canít say Iíve had anything like this before. Coffee liqueur aroma. You can taste the wine and bourbon from the barrel aging. Thanks to Greg for a glass of this special release.

tmoreau (4295) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2017
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to a snifter showing a ruby highlighted, dark brown color, with a presentable layer of tan froth, and foamy dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was dark fruit/grape, slightly vinous, with a light touch of roastiness, some barrel character, a bit of malt sweetness, and a hint of slightly annoying, "butter on a biscuit". The taste presented similar notes, less any lingering diacetyl, a medium body, fair carbonation, and substantial warmth.

AndyW68 (1541) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 6, 2017
Dark burnt amber. Aroma and taste are sweet dark fruit. A little funky. Enjoyable, but not a favorite. Blah blah blah needed a few more words.

3.6
Cybercat (5738) - Georgia, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Pours opaque chocolate brown with a fair buff head. Aroma features yeasty, dark fruit and smoky caramel tones. Flavor delivers caramel, dark fruit and malty notes, while the yeast shrinks into the background. Body is thin, but fizz is lively. Bow for it.

750-ml bottle from rare beer club. super complex nose, earthy malty "pleasantly rounded" sweet somehow chewy, "massive aromatics", good head, sweet malty barley wine, wine, chocolate, medium body, charred bitter finish. cork flew 322 in. rating #1!
