Oakshire - Hellshire I - 10% - Bourbon Barrel aged barleywine - 10.0% - Wow what a boozy beer! This is pretty damn complex. You get some nice caramel and toffee sweetness up front. Throw in a little vanilla as well. As with the American Barleywine's the hop bite at the end is very pronounced. Theses folks are from Oregon....I need to get back there for a serious beer excursion. If I come across another bottle of this I may let it age to let the hops calm down! Well done....on to 1,000!
