#018 Party Barley Wine – 10.9%
Hands off! Before this brew is ready, you need to wait. And we don’t mean till beer’o'clock. No, we got to have patience and let this baby rest, while time does its job and makes the caramelly notes blend perfectly with soft warming alcohol and crude bitterness. And to make it even worse, part of this batch has been treated with oak chips soaked in calvados. Aaargh, please let it be the end of 2012 soon, so we can open this up and have a party!
