A Note on This Beer
The double-oaked, 15.5% ABV, dark as night Barleywine from Anchorage is back. And hoo, baby, it’s bigger and badder than ever!
Although this second batch is too new for ratings, the previous iteration of Wendigo is Untappd’s Top Rated Barleywine in the world, with a staggering 4.58 score.
To craft it, the Alaskan crew started with their world famous Omnipolloscope Barleywine, and aged it in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels for eight months. Then, they transferred it to Woodford Reserve barrels for four months, completing the brew’s full year spent stashed away.
Each near-still pour erupts with aromas of deep, complex cacao, oak, and roasted toffee. Bring it to your lips, and mighty plum and fudge flavors gush onto the palate, with brown sugar and sarsaparilla lingering on the back of the tongue. The finish goes on as long as the night, emanating tinges of bourbon-soaked vanilla bean and caramel.
It goes without saying: this is the most decadent sin you’ll sip all season.
Looking for a new champion in your cellar or beer fridge? Hoping to be the envy of the next bottle swap? Wendigo is back, and folks will be all over this release. But you can sit back and enjoy the show with the ultra-rare bottle you snagged on Tavour.
