Proprietor's Vintage Series


Barley Wine

January 2015

A barrel aged English Barley wine.  Big boozy bourbon and American oak aromas combine with soft chocolate malt undertones.  Complex malt flavors framed in oak with hints of dark chocolate, vanilla, toasted coconut and a touch of dark cherry.  A sipping beer best served in a Brandy snifter.  

REMEMBER: Watch for bottled on dates located on the necks or bottom left corner of the label for each of our beers.  Our Proprietor's Reserve Series, Barrel-aged beers are built to be aged carefully.  Storing in a dark place at or below 40F will allow them to best age for several years.
