What the brewers say

“[Willett] bourbon barrel–aged English-style barleywine, matured for 23 months.”

What our panel thought

“Classic toffee and caramel notes merge with a juniper-like botanical spice in the nose along with hints of oak, leather, and tobacco. That lightly pine-like spice punctuates the caramel, vanilla, and coconut sweetness along with a coarse oaky earthiness and hints of tobacco.”

What our editors thought

“The nose suggests wine-barrel aging, with cabernet sauvignon intensity. The sip blends light chocolate into the vinous vibe.”
