Black Raven Brewing Old Birdbrain

Brewed in the style of a Barleywine.

Pours a deep mahogany color with a creamy head. Aromas of sweet caramel malt, dark fruit, and faint oak. Full-bodied with a rich malty profile and moderately high hop bitterness level. Smooth finish with some malty sweetness.

Hops: Nugget, Palisade, Mt. Hood

Malts: ESB, Rye, Crystal

Partially aged in American Rye Whiskey barrels.

Released annually.

    Great American style barleywine, malty with lots of hops and bitterness. Fruity and earthy hop notes. Touch of oak and whiskey.
