Bullet Holes and Duct Tape Barleywine
Barleywine Boasting a Burley, Complex Malty, Bitter and Slightly Sweet Profile
Hop forward, bitter, caramel/resiny
All throughout our owner’s naval career, he had these sayings (hundreds of them really!), all collectively referred to as Ollyisms. And one of his most used was “I’m going 100 miles an hour, bullet holes and duct tape.” So it seemed fitting to name this beer, which he’s been wanting to brew since we basically opened, “Bullet Holes and Duct Tape Barleywine” because it’s just got a lot going on. This beer is full bodied, hugely malty, assertively bitter, slightly sweet and has a hint alcohol warmth to it as well. You’ll get notes of caramel, toffee and dried fruit on the nose, which carry over to the flavor profile, pair well with the molasses and malt flavors, and round out the strong resiny hop finish on what only can be described as a sippin’ beer.
When you – not just your beer – have got a whole lot goin’ on, this malt-forward, must-have barleywine fits the bill!
