About Longest Night of the Year 2017

After aging in Hogshead Whiskey barrels, this beer is a true example of a classic, barrel-aged English Barleywine. Already a formidable ale in its own right, it has matured into a flavorful, complex behemoth. It offers flavors of toffee, caramel, and a warming alcohol character that’s been rounded and accentuated by notes of raisin, vanilla, and oak from its aging.
Special Techniques: Hogshead Whiskey Barrel-Aged
Malts: Maris Otter, Munich, Crystal 40, Rolled Oats
Hops: Sterling, US Golding, Perle
OG: 1.121  TG: 1.038  ABV: 10.71  IBU: 23  SRM: 17
