Chessie - Rum Barrel by Union Craft Brewing
English Barleywine
11.80 % ABV

The beast of a beer you hold in your hand has quietly slumbered in oak rum 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.

No head or lacing. Very different. From the Red Wine. Can tell difference in barrel and alcohol. Some light fruitiness from beer but not as strong as wine barrel. A lightly oppressive alcohol spirit but can't tell it's rum in particular. Astringency still there but light feeling for such a big beer. The wine barrel fruitiness made it better. The generic spirit aspect makes it worse. Lots of alcohol, astringency and malts. 636313

Price: $8.00 Served In: Snifter
