Adroit Theory Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
The brewers at Adroit Theory are renowned for deftly pushing boundaries. Their one-of-a-kind brews regularly sell out before most locals even get a shot at them!
Today’s Cold Woods (Ghost 1011) is likely destined for the same fate. There are only 75 cases of this bold beast of a Barleywine in existence, and we have 15 of them! Needless to say, once our stash runs dry . . . your chances of scoring a can are slim to none.
To craft Cold Woods, these daredevil, Virginia-based brewers doubled-down on density, high-gravity brewing this famously thick beer style. The result boasts a satisfyingly chewy mouthfeel, with a caramel-like texture.
Each smooth sip cascades across the palate with malt-forward notes of golden honey, rich toffee, and warm, bittersweet stone fruit until it comes to a balanced, bitter conclusion. With a massive 13% ABV, it’s best to savor each deliciously sweet n’ sticky sip!
You can be one of the lucky, elite group of Adroit fanatics to taste this thick and decadent Barleywine before it disappears into the cold, dark woods.

Very smooth. A sweet taste. Not overly boozy.
Excellent. Near Sucaba
Perfect example in my mind as to what a Barleywine should be. This beast is delicious and at 13 % a sipper for sure.
