Barrel Aged Cereal Killer | Arcadia Beverage Company
Style: Barleywine - English
Description: We’ve taken our English-style barley wine and aged it in Bourbon barrels for 12-18 months, where it undergoes a transformation into a more complex, layered ale with structure for years. Hazelnut-claret in color, it pours syrupy and raises and off-white head. The aroma reveals scents of nutty malt, pralines, toffee, and hints of milk chocolate. The flavor follows suit, but brings to the forefront a bold Bourbon presence, rounding and full-bodied. Sip this fine, rare treat at cellar temperature (around 50F) to allow the full malt and Bourbon complexity to come through. Winner of the Gold Medal for Wood and Barrel Aged Strong Beer at the 2009 GABF.
