Barrel Aged American Style Barley Wine – Main Street Brewing

From Main Street Brewing in Vancouver comes their “Barrel Aged American Style Barley Wine” a Winter 2017 Vintage.  The beer pours a very murky brown colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of dark fruits, toffee, resin, sweetness and a floral finish.  The flavour is of roasted malts, caramel, toffee, chocolate, dark fruits, resin, earth, oak and bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 10.5% with an IBU of 80.  This Barely Wine seemed to be a bit of a hybrid style as the bitterness was to low to be an American Barley Wine.  It was not really what I was expecting but I did quite enjoy it none the less.
