Year of New Beer: London Balling, Against the Grain Brewery (Louisville)

Written By: Dion on 09/21/2014

Sweet brown sugar, bourbon, and dessert breads on the nose. On the tongue is a smooth toasted oak, toffee and caramel, hints of vanilla, roasted nuts, and a subtle bourbon heat. Absolutely outstanding barleywine.  Sam Cruz, where the hell did you guys hide the 12.5% ABV in this one? Huge thanks to Todd S. Takei and his wife for scoring me this at the Bo & Luke Release.
