Chessie - Red Wine by Union Craft Brewing
English Barleywine
12.20 % ABV

The beast of a beer you hold in your hand has quietly slumbered in oak red wine barrels for 10 months — slowly breathing in the vanilla and oak notes from the barrel staves and adding layers of complexity to this full-flavored barleywine-style ale. The Columbus and Centennial hops have blended with rich malt and oak barrel flavors to produce a beer that is meant to be savored with every sip.

Draft at taproom. Had this side-by-side with the rum barrel. $10 for 12oz. Should Have just purchased the 16oz can to go. The wine barrel had more head and lacing than the rum. A glowing orange color but cannot see through it, thick. Aroma is very fruity with grape and tangerine. Mild fruit astringency as well. Flavor has the same fruit and astringency. I can feel the alcohol after drinking but not during the drinking. It's not an in-your-face 12%. The problem with the BA version is the same as the regular, its very astringent. But I like all the fruitiness this barrel kicked off. 737314

Price: $10.00 Served In: Snifter
