Bill’s post on the Goose Island Bourbon County Barleywine prompted me to grab this out of the refrigerator. While I am sure it won’t stand up to the Goose Island…this is a very good take on Barleywine style. When breweries put tasting notes on the bottle, sometimes I think they are reaching a bit, but this label provides a succinct description of what to expect “….an aroma of sherry, hops and fruit and a soft warming, complex palate” With all of this and a 10.1 % ABV it is still very drinkable. Now the bad news, Brooklyn is no longer producing this beer. Perhaps I should have aged this bottle longer. You may still be able to find these around, if you do, its worth grabbing. Remember quality needs no moderation and have a great weekend!
