An American Style Barley Wine that spends 100% of its life aging in 50% in Rye Whiskey Barrels and 50% Bourbon Barrels. A sweetness comes through in the flavor reminiscent of molasses and brown sugar, then the wood takes over with its spiciness from the Rye Whiskey Barrels, along with the deep flavors of Bourbon from the Bourbon Barrels. This beer is not for the light hearted, coming in @ 12.5% abv. It is sure to keep you warm on those cold winter nights.

It's got wine in the name but this is definitely a beer and one of the strongest out there. Fruity and sometimes sweet like a fine liqueur but can be bitter too. These beers are very complex and can be a lot to handle for the even the average craft beer drinker. The aromas fruity to hoppy. Mouthfeel is thick and rich and the alcohol will definitely be present.
