The Old Barrel Barley Wine has a fruity bouquet of flavors as it infuses the cheeks of piney hops, caramel malt, and ripe fruit. It pours a beautiful, translucent deep amber/copper hue with orange highlights. This barleywine has a heavy weight on the palate, smooth and creamy. Piney, herbal hops and alcohol dominate the palate while big caramel maltiness is superbly balanced by wonderfully bittersweet hoppiness. A perfect beer to age for years. Makes 5 gallons, or approximately 48 bottles of beer.
