Our 2018 Nom de Famille barrel aged series are all bottled and ready to go!
Those barrels in the back of the tasting room aren’t just for looking pretty. For the past year, our brew team has been patiently waiting for these three excellent beers to age to perfection: the Barrel Aged Stout, Barrel Aged Belgian Quad, and the Barrel Aged Barleywine! Clocking in at 14%, 9.5%, and 14% ABV, these beers are best shared with a friend.
The Barrel Aged Stout is an intensely flavored dark ale with notes of roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate. Aging for ten months in an American white oak bourbon barrel lends notes of vanilla and dark stone fruit to the beer, as well as a rounded, full mouthfeel.
The Belgian Quad is a dark, rich, and very strong Belgian ale aged to perfection in a fine Bourbon barrel for eleven months. It's complex, rich, smooth, and dangerous, with moderate vanilla sweetness and subtly spicy character.
Our Bourbon Barrel Aged Barleywine is a rich, heady ale aged for 9 months in American oak bourbon barrels. Aromas of caramel, vanilla, and toasted almonds are followed on the palate by toffee, brown sugar, and oak flavors with a full, round body and warm finish.
These exquisite brews are best enjoyed out of a snifter glass!
