Heavy Seas Brewmaster Christopher Leonard comments, “For this incredibly special anniversary we’ve brewed a Barleywine-like English-inspired Strong Ale that harkens back to our Clipper City roots. We started with imported malts and hops and a special strain of highly attenuative English yeast. We then aged the beer in fresh dumped bourbon barrels for 5 months. We then barreled it AGAIN into freshly dumped (local Sagamore) rye whiskey barrels and aged it an additional 3 months. The result is a complex, undeniably balanced beast that starts with aromas of vanilla, toffee, and marshmallow, morphing into fusel alcohol, licorice and tobacco. The flavors of dark fruits, brown sugar, and just a hint of spice, lead to cocoa powder, and (of course) whiskey. You might find some maple and treacle, estery fruit flavors like apple, pear, and strawbery in the background. The beer has a medium body with an incredibly dry, lingering finish, and a comforting warming quality. At 15.5% ABV, it has a wonderful smoothness and complexity for such a strong beer. One of our tasters described it as a “hug in a glass”. This was a 10 month labor of love for our entire production team and we hope you enjoy drinking it as much as we did making it.
