There shines a shiny demon in the middle of the road. Welcome to our first barley wine. What is a freaking barley wine anyhow? Well it is pretty much a beer at wine level of alcohol. This beer is made with 100% Maris Otter malts and given a 4 hour boil (vs. the usual 60-90 minutes) to intensify the Melanoidin character of the beer giving a rich malty character, then finished off with New Zealand Motueka hops to give an orange spice character if drunk fresh, or will blend into the background as you age it. Age for up to 5-10 years. Best enjoyed with some friends and some insanely rich blue cheese. Ain't no party like a barley wine party.
