What the brewers say

“Dark barleywine aged in Willett rye whiskey barrels.”

What our panel thought

“Spicy, fruity breadcrust nose with hints of nutmeg, fig, and toffee, with oak notes as it warms. Intriguing earthy hops telegraph restraint not sweetness. Roast and mocha border stout territory, but the strong toffee sells barleywine parentage. Not as heavy, sweet, or extreme as many, but it’s all the better for that.”

What our editors thought

“A hint of smoke joins the oak with sweet stone fruit and light spice. Boozy dark fruits evolve in the flavor before dropping into a bitter chocolate finish.”
