Outstanding
Notes: We took our Mongo Barleywine and aged it in Brandy Barrels for almost a year. The result, a malt forward ale with intense fruits, caramel, and toffee notes.

Dark brown with a murky look. Virtually no head. Smells like caramel and a little bit of sweetness from dried fruit. lots of caramel and dark dried fruit. The brandy barrel is for sure evident with more sweetness than a bourbon/whiskey barrel. Some slight hints of chocolate. Smooth and good thickness with a long after taste that gets better with time. A very good barleywine on par with Straight Jacket.
