Mountain Goat Brewery: Barrel Breed: Barelywine

From Melbourne’s Mountain Goat Brewery is the Barrel Breed: Barley Wine, an 11% ABV  (according to Untappd) American Barleywine. We were lucky enough to drink from 1 of 300 limited edition bottles of this beer.

The Barrel Breed: Barley Wine won the 2015 Beer of the Year at the Australian International Beer Awards, which is fantastic, and while we think this is an incredible beer, because of its limited quantities, we think it’s a little sad that very few others will get to enjoy it.

It smells amazing and it tastes pretty special as well. This almost has a subtle, almost a toffee, caramel sort of flavour to it. It works really well.

I really like it. It’s not mega mega sweet … This is quite lovely.

– Jeff

This is absolutely nothing like the Bad Boy Bubbly [also a barley wine]. I really quite enjoy this. I think it’s superb, I really do.

– Chris

It’s quite tasty. Definitely can taste the ABV limit, the 12.9 per cent, but it has a really sweet smell on the nose. I’m quite enjoying it.

Chris is an editor, writer, and occasional novelist who in a former life published online magazines for a living while working out of obscure coffee shops. He has travelled extensively and has eaten and enjoyed exotic delights ranging from instant ‘just add water’ potatoes while on a Russian train to snails and Brie from a tiny Montreal kitchen. Chris is a great lover of the experiences around and associated with food and believes the culture of a venue, as quirky or strange as it might be, is just as important as the food it sells. He is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast dedicated to the lighter side of craft beer.
