What the brewers say

“English-style barleywine aged in a bourbon barrel, then a rye whiskey barrel.”

What our panel thought

“Aromatic notes of cherries, rye (pepper), toffee are paired with a bourbon-barrel oak note. Sweetness and low-medium carbonation balance the chocolate, cherry, toffee flavors. Soft alcoholic notes from the oaky bourbon barrel.”

What our editors thought

“Caramel hot chocolate nose with a hint of fortified wine. Woody chocolate and bourbon notes play against a deep grape sweetness in the sip. Not quite polished, the rougher wood note running through the sip gives it the ragged but pulsing energy of a parkour runner.”
