Barrel Aged Barley Wine
This is a Barley Wine. But, not only that. It’s also an imperial stout infused cognac, cocoa, vanilla and tonka bean barrel aged barley wine! It’s a mouthful in the best of ways. Completely unique. Boom!
This is one of those beers that come out of experience, wanting and necessity. A few years back we did a barley wine called Bring It On. It was blended to one tenth barrel aged imperial stout and it was really good. So, we knew that blend worked and we’ve wanted to do it again. A few months back we emptied some cognac barrels holding We Are Beer Bristol. An imperial stout with cocoa, vanilla and tonka bean. And, those cognac barrels were too nice to just get rid of. So, we brewed a barley wine and filled up the barrels with it. And, we’re very happy that we did. Very happy.
