What the brewers say

“Our biggest beer to date, this Barley Wine was done with two mashes to make one single boil. We boiled it for over 3 hours to bring out the chewy, rich caramel flavors. This aged in Dancing Pines bourbon barrels ‘til perfection.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Bright raisin notes up front, with a nice big wood character, and a caramel sweetness that comes through as it warms and adds vanilla and coffee notes.”

Flavor: “The barrel gives some vanilla and cinnamon spice. Really nice balance of flavors. Big toffee notes with some oak earthiness. Vanilla notes from the barrel highlight and amplify a slight banana-bread flavor. Understated and drinkable alcohol presence with a sturdy body and silky mouthfeel. Warming sensation is really nice.”

Overall: “Overall a complex beer with some nuanced flavors that meld well together in a balanced way. The oak and vanilla notes shine in this beer.”
