On tap @ Iron Hill Lancaster on 12/31/13. 8oz pour. Smoked English-Style Barleywine aged 3 months in a Heaven Hills barrel. Pours a deep clear copper, topped with a thin cap of bright-white froth. Retains with some rich ringing around the edges of the glass, which slowly drips spotty lacing down the sides. The aroma is sweet up front with a mix of cocoa, caramel, brown sugar notes and vanilla. An underpinning of smoke, light citrus and barrel character help add some bass to the nose. The flavor profile is very similar, with a rich mix of caramel, brown sugars, vanilla, oak and a touch of coconut. Subtle smoke and earthy citrus sit underneath, while a spicy and charred burn on the finish does smooth out but still lingers a bit on the tongue. The mouthfeel is fuller bodied, with a lively carbonation that fills the mouth but does get a little more slick feeling underneath. Some alcohol is present here but mostly seems to be coming from the barrel. This was nice, with a well-blended mix of base and barrel flavors. The smoke, while subtle, added an extra interesting layer of complexity to the profiles. I’d love to see what this Barleywine base could do in some other types of barrels.
