Overall: 4.75 out of 5, Smoothest Barley Wine I have ever tasted
Category: Barrel Aged Barley Wine
Appearance: Deep brown color, off-white head with mild persistence
Aroma: Rye Whiskey dominates the aroma on first whiff, slight bourbon barrel mixes in later, just a hint of sweetness
Mouthfeel: Full bodied but not chewy, finishes dry
Flavors: Good amount of sweetness, carbonation is noticeable throughout, finishes dry. Amazing showcase for malt flavors. The flavors of the Rye, Bourbon and Red Wine barrels. This is a complicated beer
Aftertaste: Lingering oak barrel taste
Food Pairing: I don’t think I would try to pair this with food. It is a bad ass beer that stands alone.
I encourage you to visit the Broken Bow Brewery website to find out more about them.
