Commercial descriptions:

A new twist on the barrel-aged version of our American Barleywine, Old Numbskull has been matured in premium rye whiskey barrels for over a year to develop its rich and intense flavor profile. The result is an amazingly complex beer that balances the caramel and toasted malt character of Old Numbskull with spicy notes of vanilla and oak from the barrel aging process.

Barrel Aged Grand Cru is back! Earlier this year we released this unique, first-ever wine barrel-aged AleSmith brew and it was a great success. Barrel Aged Grand Cru is our Belgian-Style Ale that has been matured in American and French oak red wine barrels for a year to add layers of complexity to its rich flavor profile of dark fruit and Belgian caramel malts. The oak and red wine flavors imparted by the barrel-aging process blend seamlessly with subtle hints of raisin, plum, and bittersweet chocolate from the beer!
