Lakeman Regal Royale Barleywine (440ml Can)
Mahogany in colour with aromas of dark fruit and bourbon. Smooth malt base aged on bourbon oak with notes of sherry, caramel, vanilla and coconut. We think it pretty bloody good now but will only improve with age.
A Barley Wine is a strong, top-fermenting ale, with an alcohol contents of at least 9% and up to 13% (or more) by volume. Hops may be hardly noticeable at all or very noticeable. Sip them out of the special glass, that will concentrate the aroma. They are excellent with cigars or with dessert.
