Mile Wide - Double Barrel Super Maris Barleywine

I just saw that a “friend” rated this 2/5. We are no longer friends. My new friend is this can. I drank one of these when it dropped, and then saved one for a while as I traveled around the U.S. and avoided a second date because I found that a lot of places don’t want me pantsless in public.

I finally settled down at my hotel and cracked this serious can of insanity, and I love it even more today. Fuck what ya heard, this is a baller fucking barleywine. Aged for 18 months in Four Roses bourbon barrels, then aged ANOTHER 18 months in Appleton Estate rum barrels. I wonder what this would have tasted like if I saved it forever.

But, I’m happy to say that it’s plenty boozy, sweet but not tooth-cracking sweet, and I really do appreciate the double barrel aging. Mine felt balanced, but I also like tasting that rum barrel flavor after years and years of bourbon barrel joints. Def worth it. Nekkid. – Ryan
