Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

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.

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.
