We brewed this beer in 2018 with Skip Virgilio, the original founder of AleSmith, and his team from Gravity Heights. We then aged it in four different barrels for over a year as a way to honor a classic style while also creating four new beers that can be compared and appreciated in their own right.
OG Barleywine aged in bourbon barrels (11% ABV): Black cherry, vanilla, toffee, dark chocolate
OG Barleywine aged in cognac barrels (10.5% ABV): Cocoa, tobacco, honey, vanilla
OG Barleywine aged in Islay scotch barrels (11% ABV): Peat, vanilla, oak, caramel
OG Barleywine aged in peach sherry barrels (10.5% ABV): Malt, stone fruit, almonds, tannins
Note: The pictured box is no longer available. These 4 330ml bottles will be packaged in two 2-pack boxes, similar to the Barrel-Aged Old Numbskull 2-bottle set.
