Beer Description:
Arctic Devil Barley Wine, aptly named after the ferocious wolverine of the north, is brewed once a year then cellared in wine, port or bourbon oak barrels and released in December. This English-style barley wine is true to style, being bright, coppery-amber in color and intense in all aspects of the palate--very malty and balanced in bitterness with a warming alcohol finish. Arctic Devil is a vintage product, each year distinctively different from the next. Aging in different types of oak barrels for various lengths of time makes this beer rich and complex yet very smooth for such a big beer. The beer is carefully monitored throughout the barrel-aging process and transferred to stainless steel kegs at just the right time. Sometimes blending with other versions/vintages is appropriate to achieve the best flavor and complexity.
