What the brewers say

“A 2.5-year-aged barleywine in rye whiskey barrels.”

What our panel thought

“Notes of caramel, milk chocolate, and toffee in the aroma give way to a flavor profile with dark fruit, sherry, vanilla, and coconut. Hints of roast malt, coffee, and dark chocolate emerge in the finish, adding another layer of complexity. Boozy warmth is restrained but modulates the sweetness.”

What our editors thought

“Coffee cake and caramel on the nose, lightly spiced with cinnamon and vanilla. The sip pushes the caramel and bourbon note forward, sweetly, at the expense of structure.”
