Aged in Makers Mark barrels.
This is our once a year brew of bourbon barrel aged barley wine. Its aged in Jack Daniels barrels for a year to allow the beer to mellow out and mature. The oak provides a dimension of coconut, vanilla and even a touch of bourbon. Dark red, low carbonation and great depth, this is one of our most special beers.

Malts: Pale malt, Munich, Caramel and roasted malts.
Hops: Perle and Saaz.
Highly complex aroma of vanilla, caramel, molasses, bourbon, malts.
Food pairings: dark chocolate, blue/sharp cheeses.

Pours dark brown, almost black, with small head disappearing fast. Aroma: vanilla, caramel, raisins, marzipan, wood, but also clear dark malt character. Taste: very complex taste of vanilla, caramel, chocolate, raisins, dark malt. Fantastic stuff. The ABV is pleasantly present in the palate, overall nicely hidden.

On tap. The head is tiny and light brown. The colour is dark brown with tons of red. Concernig the aromas, i smell chocolate, vanilla and of course pretty much bourbon and alcool. In mouth, its chocolate, vanilla, also wood and of course the alccolic side of the bourbon (thanks to it, its not too sweet for that style of beer). What stay in the palate is long and nice, very balanced.

Dark, hazy mahogany color with tan head. Aroma has sweet malt syrup and some dried fruits, mostly dates. Taste follows with dark fruits, more like dried figs, sweet malt and brown sugar. Finish is more bitter with some earthy hops. Medium sticky body with low carbonation. Overall its really nice but I would like to get more bourbon flavor.

Bottle at a tasting. Lots of coconut, dried fruits, raisins, woody, toasted, light tobacco, explosion of wonderful aromas and flavours. Sweetness nicely balanced by alcohol warmth and woody notes. Easy drinking, relatively. Truly excellent.
