About This Beer
For Barrel Aged Bucket of Bolts, River North took their fan-favorite Barleywine and let it rest in bourbon barrels, accentuating all that sticky sweetness with layers of oak and whiskey vanilla.
Rich currents of dates, chocolate covered raisins, and golden caramel course through every sip. Whispers of woody spice and just a bit of bitterness balance out the decadent bread pudding flavors.
Thick Rich Oaky Chewy
probably should of held onto this for at least a year b4 opening...but hey, it's Thanksgiving.
I wished for BA of this earlier in the year and I got it! Fantasticly smooth caramel malt booze, some hops appear when at room temp but otherwise super easy drinking toffee juice. Medium light bodied tastiness.
chocolate, dark fruit, whiskey. all good
Malt sweetness up front on palate and nose. Average BW body with mild booze as it warms. Not really getting any bourbon. Enjoyable but rather bland BW.
really good beer. malty sweetness and caramel flavors. boozy but smooth.
a nice barrel aged Barleywine
less thick than I expected, phenomenal flavor throughout, a complex fig/date w a dark chocolate edge
dry, soy sauce, light chocolate, soy sauce, alcohol taste. It's not very complex. It's a perfect barley wine for a novice.I also prefer, more chocolate notes, and sweetness from smell and taste. Smell is, very bland, but subtly sweet.
chewy and boozy. super rich
Nice bourbon flavor. Not much sweetness. Improves as it warms. Good.
