A Note on This Beer
The only thing better than a giant, boozy Barleywine, is a giant, boozy, Bourbon Barrel-Aged Barleywine. And it doesn’t get much bigger than Gigantic Brewing’s MASSIVE Bourbon Barrel-Aged Barleywine 2018!
This sweet nectar spent a whopping 2 years in Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrels and comes with a towering 14.3% ABV!
Obviously need MASSIVE malt flavor to go along with all that booze, and this caramel-drenched behemoth has plenty!
The World Beer Cup Award-winners at Gigantic mash robust British Golden Promise Malt and boil it for 8 hours, caramelizing the sugars and creating a burly body with endless waves of toffee, butterscotch, candied dates, and maple.
And after a full year in the cellar, this baby drinks smoother than silk! Be careful when you open it because it would be mighty easy to tip back the whole bottle without even noticing. Heck, even before it mellowed for a year, it had fans raving. It earned a stellar 4.23 on Untappd!
And when Tavour poured this beast at a Portland tasting event, we practically had to fend off the line of Barleywine fiends with a stick. They kept stumbling back for taster after taster until our stock was dry!
So if you’re trying to go BIG, you’re in the right place. True to its name, this Heaven Hill-soaked Barleywine is super-gigantically-MASSIVE.
