Gigantic Massive Bourbon Barrel Aged Barleywine 2017
Massive Bourbon Barrel Barleywine has spent almost 2 years in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. The depth of flavor is incredible, and the beer has reached 14.3% abv. This will be the first time we will be packaging MASSIVE! in 16.9oz bottles, and the first time we're releasing the Bourbon Barrel Aged version outside of the brewery.

MASSIVE! Barleywine Technique

Brewers in the midlands of England would boil their barleywine ales for longer times to intensify their flavors. In making MASSIVE! we use only one richly flavored British malt and boil for eight hours, giving the beer a deep ruby color and rich malt flavor. Heavily hopped, MASSIVE! is a beer that can be enjoyed now for its intensity, or after years and years and years of aging.

We will not be making a non-barrel aged version this year. MASSIVE! is only available bourbon barrel aged.

14.3% ABV | 20 IBU
