BEER INFO

Brewed by:
7 Seas Brewery and Taproom
Washington, United States
7seasbrewing.com

Style: English Barleywine

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.60%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed in the tradition of British-style Barley Wines, our 2011 offering displays burgundy/brown hues, a thick off-white head of lacey foam, toasted malt, a strong presence of raisiny, vinous fruit aroma and warming alcohol. Crafted with British Marris Otter, dark crystal and aromatic malts, liberally hopped with Glacier and East Kent Goldings, we also added 60 LBS of locally sourced Washington State Clover honey to the boil kettle. With its’ coating, silky rich mouth-feel, and complex interplay of deep caramel malt, ripe fruit aroma and sturdy alcohol, 7 Seas 2011 Barley Wine is a colossal, yet refined brew, perhaps best savored in the Ultimate Proper ‘Brandy’ glass, cheers!
