What the brewers say

“Barleywine aged in Laws Whiskey bourbon barrels.”

What our panel thought

“The nose invites you into a world of toasted oak, rich malt, and pleasant alcohols. Pleasant fruity esters and a subtle but noticeable vanilla-like oak character complement the malty sweetness of caramel, toffee, and butterscotch. Heat lingers in the finish a bit too much.”

What our editors thought

“A vinous nose offers light red-grape notes, a touch of balsamic, and some charred bourbon notes in the back. A sprawling undefined light caramel note in the sip.”
