Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

After spending 4 years in Brandy barrels it became time to unleash the dark monster within. Thick toffee aromatics exude with dense layers of fig, molasses, caramel, and a medley of dark fruits. Sweet flavors of toffee and caramel mingle with the warming spice of vanilla, sherry-like notes, and brandy barrel oak tannin. When served above 55 degrees Fahrenheit (highly recommended) more dark fruits like plum, date, raisin, and fig are further revealed. Our CEO/Founder Mike Hinkley has enjoyed pairing this Brandy Barrel Aged Barleywine with a big stuffed “Shaggy” dog that came from the local fair carnies and therefore we now have “Sleepin' with Shaggy”.

Poured from a bottle at Green Flash tasting room for the Silva & Sleepin' with Shaggy release. Pours dark brown with no head. Slight aroma of brandy, molasses and dried fruit. Flavor packs a strong punch. Brandy barrel, caramel, spice and figs. Medium bodied, slightly oily. Very hot. High carbonation leads into a clean dry finish. Epic....
