Notes/Commercial Description:
English-Style Barleywine Aged in Cabernet Barrels

Iron & Barleywine is an English-style barleywine brewed with a balancing array of hops. Notes of citrus, plum, pear, grape, wine, fig, honey, and rock candy blend into a complex, slow sipping brew. The barrel aging adds a distinct vineous quality, prominently featuring the flavors of red wine and toasted oak. This special release bottle was aged for three months in California oak cabernet barrels. Ready to drink now, or cellar for future enjoyment.

On draft, pours a dark ruby red, good carbonation.

The nose is pine and resin hops, crystal malt, caramel, a little brown sugar, oak and smells a little acidic from the red wine. The flavor is bright, citrus, dark fruit, grape, and a little honey. The barrel is present, a little oak and toast, but nothing crazy. The mouthfeel is sticky, but this has a good balance between the flavors.
