Black Barleywine: This behemoth of a barleywine brings all of the rich malt character you would expect, with a color and subtle roasted edge that makes it surprisingly drinkable. The chocolate and licorice flavors help cut the malt sweetness, with a finish of vanilla, nougat and crème brûlée from extended aging in oak. ABV: 11.9% | IBU’s: 45
Spiritual Awakening: Barrel Aged Scotch Ale We brought in some really nice scotch whisky barrels and had a great pub recipe for a peated scotch ale, so we decided to combine the two. The result is a rich and luxurious marriage of malt and oak, with notes of toffee, dried fruit, whisky, vanilla, and a delicate smoky finish. 100% barrel aged for 10 months. ABV: 10.7% | IBUs: 20
