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.

A lot of scent of whiskey and oak barrels. Taste of whiskey, oak barrels and incredibly high alcohol. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. The taste of the alcohol takes over all other tastes and sharing beer is not good. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2017 750 ml bottle shared with drsordr and Corey. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, brown sugar, bourbon, vanilla, wood, some oxidation as this had a little age, some late bitterness, a bit of the alcohol, good.

SvanteL (651) - SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2017
Vackert kopparfärgad med beiget skum. Torkad frukt och whisky i doften. Otroligt fyllig med stadiga whiskytoner och fat, först sötma av torkad frukt sedan en rejäl slutbeska. Häftig!

Flaska beställd från SB. Mörkt brunröd med beige skum. Doft av kola, vanilj och bourbon. Mjuk och lite smörig med smak av kola och bourbon med fin beska på slutet.
