COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In November of 2010, we filled 1 Jack Daniels and 1 Heaven Hill Rye Whiskey barrel with our Barleywine (Institutionalized). The combination of these two unique barrels yield a very rich and complex finished product. Deep aromas and flavors of dark stone fruits, bourbon, molasses, toasted coconut and vanilla come in waves as you swirl this beer in the snifter.

Future releases, especially the first bottle release saw this offering aged exclusively in Woodford Reserve barrels. This is noted for the 2012 December Release, but will not be seperated out.

AWISLguy (2863) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 15, 2016
650ml bottle from ck1, shared by all at poker night. Thanks bro! Big thick pour with little head. Aroma has stone fruits, candied fruits, and big sweet malts. Taste is of plums, other stone fruits, and some citrus & candy all on a vanilla caramel thick malt base. Blend was well done, and the body was quite thick. Lowly carbonated and alcoholly. Finishes sweetly thick and tart. Quite strong and quite good ... but a sipper. 13.8

RickTheRick (949) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2015
Un joli liquide cuivr aux reflets rougetres se verse dans le verre et ne mousse que trs peu. Au nez, on a droit un sucre dorge de luxe, trs vanill et avec un aspect bois lger. La texture de la bire est trs sirupeuse en bouche, et combine une chaleur dalcool trs intense, on croirait boire un bourbon gazifi. Des pices, des fruits rouges ... plein de choses se passent et cest superbe.
