Goose Island King Henry
From Goose Island – Barrel Aged Barleywine. 11% ABV, 60 IBUs. Loosely based off our 2000th brew at our production facility,we revived this hybrid American / English Barley Wine for a special treat. Coming out of the tanks we aged it in barrels previously used for Bourbon County Rare Stout (Pappy Van Winkel 23 Year) to add another layer of complexity.
Goose Island (In-Bev) – Goose Island King Henry – 22 oz. bottles poured into a goblet. 13.4% abv.
Appearance: Pours dark red with a tan ring.
Aroma: Bourbon, chocolate, caramel, dark fruit, wood.
Taste: Brown sugar, bourbon. A little chocolaty with some dark fruit.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, sticky.
Overall: One of the best aged barleywines I’ve ever had. Delicious.
