Oak Aged Barleywine has a deep copper color and an intense malt flavor balanced by assertive hops. Fermentation with American ale yeast allows the caramel malt to shine. We age the beer on new, medium toast Missouri Oak to enhance its complexity and to develop its smooth, luscious character. Barleywine is a classic English-style hearty ale. The term refers to a beer with the potency of wine and is often vintage-dated.
