BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Monkey Paw Pub & Brewery
California, United States
monkeypawbrewing.com

Style: American Barleywine

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.80%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed over 3 days with a 3 hour boil each day. We used all English malts and hops, including Marris Otter and Golden Promise for the base malts, and a UK ale yeast. The beer is rich without being cloying, malt driven yet balanced and smells like apricot jam and toffee. Kong should evolve with time but is ready to enjoy in its fresh state now. Long live the KING!
