Steel & Oak Brewing En Rouge Barley Wine Review Steel & Oak Brewing Co. – En Rouge Cabernet Sauvignon Barrel Aged Barley Wine Review

The Steel & Oak Brewing Company has brewed up a Barley Wine and aged it in red wine barrels for a unique twist on this high alcohol beer style. Pouring from the bomber bottle this beer is deep brown with a reddish hue and has two fingers of dense and lacing head that tops the glass. The aroma is rich with oaky, lightly sour wine character that is not typical of the Barley Wine Style. There is also a bit of booziness on the nose along side a deep and roasty character. In the flavour the wine adds a very pleasant and unique twist to the flavour. The body is surprisingly light for a Barley Wine while the oak and wine notes give a rich, earthy and every so slightly sour character. There is also a cherry like flavour along with vanilla and black current. This is a very balanced beer that is unique and hides its strength very well. Watch out, this beer will sneak up on you if you aren’t careful.

Alcohol – 10.0%
Size – 650ml
