COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Veritas 011 is a Barleywine aged in McCall Cognac Barrels for 11 months. We added some fresh nectarines over the summer and hit it with a splash of Brett Clausenii.

It is not sour and may only develop a bit a fruity Brett qualities over time, so we arent expecting a full blown sour ale. ABV is 12.85%.

Bottle 019. Thanks to Rich for acquiring and GT for transporting. Served in a glass. Pours a cloudy amber-brown with a transient stale, off white head. Head fades to a thin bubbly collar and thin streaks of lace. Aroma is very warm and boozy; cognac up front, with a young raw and resiny barleywine. Lemon, tangerine, schnapps and sugar throughout. Aroma turns into rubbing alcohol as it warms. Thicker side of medium body, coats palate with a syrupy finish; soft and subtle carbonation. Chewy flavor, pulpy and resiny sugars with nectarine and strawberry fruit. Surprisingly no alcohol presence or burn in flavor, though finish is extremely warm. Brett hasnt done much yet, I sort of like the fruitiness and am happy to have tried this fresh.
