Stormwatcher Winterfest Barleywine
Pelican Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
Internationally acclaimed with killer ratings and a unique dark malty edge, Pelican Brewing’s Stormwatcher’s Winterfest Barleywine is an unmissable experience.
In a style known for pushing malt to its limits, Stormwatcher goes even further, venturing into uncharted depth and roastiness. By bringing a dark side to the style, Stormwatcher has made itself a visionary favorite, bringing fans back every year to enjoy its unrivaled view of malt’s many facets.
Stormwatcher’s five varieties of malt get dark fast, producing a hearty 12% ABV. Traditional Scottish Golden Promise Malt teams up with Munich and Caramel Malts to create dark toffee flavors in a clean crisp package. Melanoidin Malt provides the traditional, complex, and rich grain flavors of a Barleywine from centuries past.
Experience dark intrigue with a splash of crimson chestnut in your glass. Stormwatcher aromatically recalls leathery richness, molasses, and honey raisins. Supping brings a cascade of dark toasted bread and lightly burnt sugar. Malts are so pronounced they take on the role of hops, providing a hint of oaken bitterness and balance to their own sweetness. Warm alcohol cleaves creamy complexity, leaving you rosy and pleased.
Edging toward the dark side of the spectrum, malt approaches its full potential in Stormwatcher. As an innovative look at the Barleywine that’s earned awards around the world (a Gold European Star and Silver at the North American and Australian Beer Awards) Stormwatcher is a singular dance with darkness.
