This noble brown winter beer with fiery reflections offers a complex aroma of fruit, alcohol and hops. Once tasted, it is slightly sweet with a hint of burnt caramel. Aged in American oak barrels, the bitterness has eased and it has wooden notes topped with a subtle touch of vanilla. A maderisation occurred after maturation in the barrel (aged one year), and the textures and flavors blend, becoming sweeter.
Best Barley Wine ever for me ! Amazing balance, much smoother than the regular version, especially when it comes to the bitterness, well shattered by the barrel aging. Complex flavors and very easy to drink. Marvellous, at least...
