COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This special release of our acclaimed, hefty barley wine has been aged for over 9 months in Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey barrels. The process tempers Old Ruffian’s edges for a mellowed version with heady whiskey flavors and subtle oak notes. Each limited edition, individually-numbered bottle is special in its own right. This rounded wonder clocks in at 85-90 IBUs.

Pours a very dark reddish brown with a creamy beige head leaving nice thick lacing behind. The aroma is pancakes and syrup, tobacco, chocolate, caramel, a touch of red wine, oak, and hops. The taste is all of the above and manages to transcend all of these individual qualities into something far superior as a whole. Complex yet accessible. Outstanding and perfect in my book.

Nice pour with big pillow head,slight tannish. Fantastic aroma of vanilla and oak as description states. Flavor is fantastic with rich caramel, hops and bourbon. Such a great all around beer!!!
