#216/500 (1 of 2). Getting ready for D/T Day 2018. The only variant btld last year. So smooth. Cocoa nibs & vanilla layer over the Belgian Stout. The barrel aging only strengthens the flavors throughout. See y’all TBC 04.21.2018.

Coconut 🥥 for days! The sweetness has coffee ☕️ & the 🥥/ ☕️ combo makes one think there is milk chocolate 🍫 notes 📝. This is how fresh coconut 🥥 tastes & is rare in a beer. Great 👍🏻 job FBB! Too many emojis 🤭?

Love having a few of these each year. The anise is very prominent this yr (‘17). The chocolate is smooth w/ the Jack Daniels notes. The honey & sorghum are also noticeable @ the end.

So the unusual hop here is Citra dry hopped @ the end. Brilliant! A classic mix of 🥃 + Barleywine characters but throw in Citra - genius 👍

Mellow golden Barleywine is mellowed squared by toffee flavored 🥃 Barrels flavors. Subtle bitter @ end smothered by vanilla & more toffee!

A nice ale showcasing the Rye 🥃 beautifully. Oaky flavors w/ notes of toffee. The finish has ever so slightly bitter - like a Barleywine 👍
