Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Thickfreakness on 11-03-2012

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Bolt Cutter is a cellarable barley wine with an ABV of 15%. Dry-hopped with a mountain of Cascade hops, it’s balanced by a malty sweetness and spicy complexity, resulting from barrel aging some of it in bourbon barrels, some in maple syrup-bourbon barrels and some not at all (standard fermentation only). We’ve allowed the beer to mature in bottles and kegs since July so that it would be perfect for its release next month. Bolt Cutter pours a deep copper color and is best sampled at different temperatures to allow the flavors to unfold.

Had a 22 oz bottle of this onsite at Al's of Hampden, graciously split with a buddy of mine. This was very good... Let it sit for another 6 months to a year or more and it'll be amazing. It's very HOT right now, especially when it warms up. this bottle is well worth the coin but my suggestion is to cellar it for a bit.
