Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Beefytits4 on 05-29-2013

Our Oak Aged Barleywine has a deep copper color and an intense malt flavor balanced by assertive hops. Fermentation with American ale yeast allows the caramel malt to shine. We age the beer on new, medium toast Missouri Oak to enhance its complexity and to develop its smooth, luscious character.

Barleywine is a classic English-style hearty ale. The term refers to a beer with the potency of wine and is often vintage-dated.

This beer will continue to age well in a cool dark place for several years, but it is ready to enjoy now.

A: Dark copper colored brew with a huge, off white head that leaves thick, sticky lace all the way down the glass.

S: Oak... Oak... Oak...

T: Very sweet, malty base with huge oak flavor.

M: Leaves a heavy oak flavor on your tongue for quite a while.

O: Definitely my favorite oaked beer.

A 2012 bottle poured from a 750 into a FW snifter.

L- Nice and dark, kinda burnt looking...very murky.

S- Sweet sugar plums, toffee, caramel, dark fruits and a little oak....maybe some bread.

T- Oaky caramel, toffee, dark fruits...wow, I really like it! Age has mellowed it substantially and allowed the flavors to meld somewhat, but they are still distinguishable if you really think about it and focus. Just the right amount of sweetness up front with a slightly bitter finish.

F- Just right, enough carbonation to feel but not enough to tickle.

O- Very good Barleywine, would definitely grab if I saw again.

This is a typical barley wine....malty, boozy, woody, and strong. Mahogany in color, faint haze, thin head. The smell is refined and forceful. Malty. Full in body and warming.

The flavor in this is quite delicious with caramel, coffee, malt, maple, molasses with a turn to chocolate. The chocolate is more profound near the end with hints of bitterness. It's issue is in the feel with an inappropriate thinness but that plays into its deceptive ease. At over 10% it is very easy to drink.
