Liquid Riot/Oxbow Timelapse Cognac Barrel Aged Barleywine
Our first ever drop of this Liquid Riot/Oxbow collaboration, a delicious English Barleywine that was aged in Cognac barrels. This beer is a labor of love, they began the boil on this monster at 9pm and finished up at 9am, a 12 hour boil used to get lots of Maillard reactions which give the beer beautiful notes of toffee and caramel, which you can't get any other way. This beer is 13.5% abv, and the aging in Cognac barrels gives notes of that spirit as well as more richness. This beer is decadent, delicious and built for long, slow sipping.
