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.

Tap. Poured a dark ruby color with an average frothy tan head that lasted with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, dark fruit and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy toasted malt, dark fruit sweet flavor with a heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is standout beer.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2012 Sampled at the brewpub. Pours a hazy brown with a bit of an amber hue and a yellowish tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is sweet with grains and caramel backed by sweet barrel and a hint of fruit. Flavor begins with sweet grains and is joined by caramel and vanilla as well as a hint of bourbon.

4.2
hopscotch (11051) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours lightly hazy and burnt-orange with a tiny, fleeting, white head. The aroma is a malty collage of coconut, vanilla and bourbon accompanied by toasted oak and caramel malts. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is a rich melding of Caramel, vanilla, toasted oak and buttery toffee. Boozy, caramel and coconut finish. Another world class beer shared by the one, the only, the ever-generous newcigarz! I’m really digging the bottles coming out of Revolution. I look forward to more of them.
