Notes / Commercial Description:
Circle of Wolves is our beloved English barleywine that we created with intentions of spending extended periods of time in barrels. Clocking in at 12.8%, this batch spent 12 months in freshly dumped Laird’s Apple Brandy barrels. It then spent another 2 months in the bottle. Full bodied with beautiful notes of raisins, dark fruits, molasses, apple brandy, soft leather, and maple syrup

Pours dark rust brown with a half-inch khaki head that disappears completely and leaves no lace. Pipe tobacco, caramel and booze on the nose. A boozy blend of cocoa, toffee, burnt sugar and raisins. Medium texture with low carbonation. Still fairly hot & boozy.

Pours a thick black with a tan head. Nice sweet smell of the apple Brandy barrels. Has a smooth sweet taste from the barrel followed by a nice oaky taste from the barrel. Nice barley wine with the sweet finish..

Pours dark brown bordering on black with a tan head. Aroma is light brandy spice, caramel, and toffee. Taste is full bodied, rich sweet caramel/toffee and a great barrel finish. No burn, very smooth finish.
