Style: American Barleywine

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 14.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Top Fuel is a barrel aged American style Barley Wine brewed by Local Option Bierwerker. This super charged beer surges forward at 330 MPH; appearing hazy light copper with immediate notes of toffee, caramel, pine and earthy undertones. Full bodied with a velvety mouth feel, and lingering bitterness, Top Fuel is aged on Four Roses bourbon barrels, yielding a devastating barley wine worthy of its name. No adjuncts or extracts of any type are used in Top Fuel.
