Bourbons and English barleywines often share complementary notes of toffee and caramel flavors, so aging our first barleywine in Woodford Reserve bourbon barrels seemed a natural direction for this beer. The barrels impart a touch of vanilla and oak, and with the addition of Oaxacan chocolate our finished beer sounds more like an indulgent dessert. Like a fuller-bodied Napa Cabernet, our barleywine achieves balance during its twelve months in bourbon barrels. Once mature, this Bourbon Barrel Aged Chocolate Barleywine can be paired with dishes such as butter pecan gelato or bananas foster.
