Schell Stag Series #7 - Barleywine (Wine Barrel Aged)
Stag Series #7 was an American style Barleywine, and we filled a single wine barrel from Carlos Creek Winery last year to age it in. After spending 9 months in the barrel, it was racked into a cask and is available now for the first time at ABR 2013.
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.
