Untitled Art/Jackie O's Barley Shake
The other new beer we are getting from Untitled Art tomorrow is a collaboration with Ohio's Jackie O's, a brewery famous for barrel aged barleywines and stouts. This is an English style Barleywine that is brewed with lactose. When we sampled this yesterday we weren't sure what to expect, as barleywine can be a sweet style already, and the addition of milk sugars could put it over the top. Instead the lactose gives the beer a creaminess that works, and the finish is smooth with just loads of toffee. Dangerously smooth and drinkable for a 12% barleywine.
