It’s like Essex in your mouth
English style barleywine aged in Pinhook and Weller bourbon barrels. Brewed with enough pale ale, caramel malt and wheat to nearly overflow our mash tun. We then balanced this beer with some Magnum and Herkules hops. The resulting ale was sweet, nutty and powerful, but we didn’t stop there. The entire batch was put into used bourbon barrels for 4 months to gather the residual bourbon flavor and some aromatic and drying oak notes. By the way, Balling is a measurement of specific gravity.
