About This Beer
“It’s like maple brown sugar oatmeal with berry preserves mixed in.”
That’s how the aficionados at Paste Mag described today’s Barleywine after blind tasting 62 of the best brews in the style. This offering from Alaska’s Midnight Sun landed among the top 15.
This boozy beer from the north country exudes bold flavors of caramelized sugar, date, and candied fig. Notes of oak, vanilla, and whiskey from oak barrel aging linger in the background, and it all leads to a finish that is shockingly smooth — even at 13.5% ABV, this is a Barleywine that can sneak up on you.
