Bourbon Barrel Aged Barleywine

Some of us have it and some of us dont. You know what were talking about. That quintessential mark of a true man of beer legend, the very badge of the great brew masters the world over. Around here, we call it beard envy. And like this robust beer, it speaks volumes with words like Put that razor down and take a drink. With flavors of toffee, raisins and dark fruit accentuated by vanilla and a hint of bourbon balanced by the resinous pine notes of Chinook hops, this barrel-aged barley wine masterwork is as bold and hearty as the beards we salute.

ALIBALI (1108) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 20, 2016
Ein echtes Schwergewicht. Wollstig schnuppert es, nach Wein, Whiskey, Hopfenwrze und ein bisschen Butter und macht definitiv Lust auf mehr. Beim Trunk wird den Geschmacksknospen dann ordentlich auf die Pelle gerckt. Massivste Alkohol- und Hopfenschrfe dominieren ALLES!! und zu den bereits gerochenen Aromen gesellen sich noch Waldhonig, Wein und Beeren. Heavy und seine 80IBUs reizt er voll aus, unser kratzbrstiger Geselle. BIG!!!! 0,33l Flasche aus der BIEROTHEK in Bamberg. Ca.5,50.

Leighton (19497) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle shared during RBWG 2014 Asheville - Late Nite session. Cheers! Pours clear amber with a frothy, tan head. Good stuff. Lots of bread, toffee, dates and plums. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Very nicely balanced in the finish, with more ripened fruits, toffee and bready malts. Hits the right notes.

kingaugusta (259) - Georgia, USA - DEC 15, 2015
Pours fairly deep copper and hazy with a big light brown head.nose is a moderate mixture of whiskey, floral hops, and sweetness from the barley malt. the Bourbon Barrel aging comes out strong on the flavor, fading to a general lightly hopped sweetness on the backside. finish is sticky and a little busy but not offensive. decent barleywine
