The Barley Wine was a huge beer we brewed to celebrate our 600th Gyle (brew). This BA Barley Wine was brewed over summer 2021 and laid to rest, maturing in the oak bourbon barrels from Heaven Hills Distillery in Kentucky, allowing flavours to blend and mellow.
Expect a body of luxurious smooth caramel, intense malt & dried fruit flavours, and a hint of nutty umami on the palate. The barrel-aged version takes on additional flavours of oak and vanilla from the barrel, before offering a delectable warming alcohol finish.
The strength of a North American Barley Wine but with the malt flavours and mouthfeel of an old English classic. Like the finest Christmas Pudd enjoyed in your favourite woollen pullover beside a crackling, roaring fireplace, curtains drawn and fairy lights twinkling. The ultimate winter warmer.
