Notes/Commercial Description:
To commemorate our 3rd year anniversary we brewed this hearty wheat barley wine with piloncillo sugar and aged it for 4 months in Appleton rum casks. The result is something special; layers of caramel, molasses, toasted malt, oak and warmth. Cheers!

Thanks to Drucifer for handing this off at Darkness Day, as I continue my quest to consume everything wheatwine. In a barrel? Please, thank you. 22 oz. red-fist bottle split with my wife.

Pour is dark orange brown with just enough carbonation to convince me it's not carrot juice. Nose speaks to rum & caramel, though it's not of the strong or persuasive variety.

Revolution 3rd Year Beer states that it's aged in rum barrels. Really? Tastes more like rum aged in beer barrels. Hot, luscious rum takes a big bite out of my palate; beautiful. Vanilla, caramel, watery sugar, big sweet malts, with the wheat only forming a distant backdrop that might be overlooked if it weren't part of the title. Sticky, thick. Good walleye, I could drink this all night.

One off? Too bad. One of the best rum barrel-aged beers I've had to date. Revolution! Make this again! An excellent beer that breathes on elite.
