About This Beer
Through Woven Branches is a limited offering released in honor of Elder Pine’s anniversary. To craft this Barrel-Aged Dark Lager blend, Elder Pine combined three whiskey barrel-aged beers — a Black Lager aged 20 months, a Baltic Porter aged 23 months, and an Amber Lager aged 20 months. Then they lagered the blend in steel for an additional four weeks.
Every light, decadent sip cascades in complex nuances of dark chocolate, rich caramel, roasted malt, and whispers of spiced oak. It all culminates in a refreshing, whiskey-kissed, Lager-crisp finish.
Crisp Bold Oaky
Halfway through this one and each sip enhances the complexity. Incredibly rich and flavorful for a 6.5 ABV lager.
Great roasty brew
Smooth, roasty, coffee, chocolate with subtle bourbon barrel.
Interesting and enjoyable
It's tasty, but the barrels seem pointless.
ok up front, but I didn’t like the finish
Through Woven Branches
love the style, beer was pretty great.
Definitely noticed notes of oak and some coffee roasts. The barrel aged dark made this pretty good for me but it was a bit lighter than I was hoping (as a lager should be)
ok beer, not my favorite
was very surprised with one. not heavy on barrel aging but enough to know it’s very much there.
Woody and dry, almost red wine-esque, combined with a velvety mouth feel and flavors that seem akin to a beautiful Frankenstein's monster concoction of dark beer, whiskey, and somehow coffee grounds.
whiskey flavor the rest is just plain
I found this to be quite tasty and complex. The different layers were noticeable with a nice cocoa finish. As it warmed up it still good. Fantastic job.
roasty, complex, crisp
unique and delicious
this was interesting. the blends were interesting and fun. a touch of barrel. different things popped at different times.
crisp and complex, let this warm and it keeps getting better
like it with food, less on its own. touch too piney for me as a solo drink
Strange combination of blends
dry, malty, but very light, toasty-esque lager.
there’s charcoal in my lager! no, there’s lager in my charcoal!
Roasty, malty aromas. Medium mouthfeel. Notes of bittersweet chocolate, oak, and a bit of coffee and whiskey. Finishes crisp and dry. Really unique beer.
Lots of wood, smells great. Appreciate the creativity, and it’s very good.
Definitely a well blended dark lager, but not to my taste. Slight dark chocolate notes.
Masterful blend of the different barrel aged beers. Dark, roasty, barrel, delicious.
