What the brewers say

“Laws whiskey barrel–aged barleywine.”

What our panel thought

“Moderate caramel, toast, and pipe tobacco. Light buttery vanilla oak. Soft notes of dried apricot and fig. Rich and sweet malt with flavors of caramel, toast, and pipe tobacco. Significant alcohol, hot on the swallow. Finishes sweet and a touch cloying. Alcohol lingers a while.”

What our editors thought

“Light nuttiness and caramel on the nose. In the sip, wood meets nuts with a light ethanol edge. More breezy and pointed than deep.”
