Heavy Seas Below Decks (Bourbon Barrel Aged)
Heavy Seas Below Decks (Bourbon Barrel Aged) is an English Barleywine, and is the barrel aged version of Below Decks. This is the 2012 Vintage that ended up sitting in the cellar for not quite one year. This is light years behind the great barleywines out there, too many rough edges. For the price you pay, however, it is pretty damn good. This starts off very boozy, (which wasn’t a bad thing after a hard night at the bar), after that I taste some toffee, bourbon, vanilla, caramel, and more booze. Pretty much in that exact order. It won’t change your life, but this is a great anytime barleywine you can enjoy without out the guilt of having something too special on a random Wednesday night.
