What the brewers say

“Barleywine brewed with maple sugar and aged in bourbon and Cognac barrels.”

What our panel thought

“Decadent notes of caramel, toffee, and vanilla pair with a hazelnut-like aroma and a hint of smoke-like character in the nose. The flavor is nondescriptly sweet, with caramel, black raisin, black cherry, hazelnut, and almond.”

What our editors thought

“Benedictine liqueur with subtle caramelized-banana notes in the nose. The sip is sugary sweet with light brown-sugar notes and just a bit of burnt bread crust to balance.”
