MANY MOONS AGO, before DSSOLVR ever opened our doors, we had the intense pleasure of going down to Florida to brew with our buds @corporateladderbrewing. We had the crazy idea of whipping up a Barleywine with Brown Sugar, and it turned out to be amazing, so we knew we had to invite them up to brew it here shortly after we got operations rolling in Asheville. So a little over four years ago, the crew came up, and we did the damn thing! THEN, we were told that the CLB crew was relocating to NC (keep your eyes peeled, and a big welcome to our new neighbors!) so we had to brew it AGAIN! A FRESH BATCH!
Mashed with a medley of @riverbendmalt malts, including some Munich Oats, fermented with our House Pub yeast, and then hit with a bunch of Brown Sugar in the boil and throughout fermentation. BUT THEN, we laid the entirety of the batch down to rest in some exxxxtra choice 8yr Elijah Craig Bourbon Barrels…for 24 months…
The result is a wonderful cacophony of flavors, coming together in a huge harmonious balance that we’re so so proud of. We’ve been loving giving our barrel-aged beers more and more time in wood, and this is really a shining example of long-term barrel character, uninhibited by extraneous adjuncts.
We experience waves of deep and luscious Malt complexity, Oaky Vanilla tannins, mounds of fresh biscuits stuffed with Brown Sugar and drizzled with Molasses, and truly just pure Barleywine bliss. God damn. That’s a tasting note. So fucking good. Yep.
PS: The rest of THIS BATCH is undergoing a secondary aging process. It was racked out of Cherry Apple Brandy after 24 months and into some super-fresh and sexy Bourbon barrels. So that’s a future thing.
PPS: The rest of the ORIGINAL BATCH that got double-barreled from Brandy-to-Bourbon is ALSO still sitting idly by and doing it’s thing. Keep your eyes peeled for March!
