We’re surprising you today with a special release, barrel-aged barleywine, Tragic Vision (9.5%)!
This was an impromptu brew made many, many months ago as we needed another beer to put into our Port Chilkoot whiskey barrels. These barrels previously held our Divine Intervention Belgian Tripel and Terror Barrel-Aged Russian Imperial Stout. This is also the last beer to grace these particular barrels before they are retired.
Where the barleywine sleeps (barrels from Port Chilkoot Distillery in Haines, AK).
Tragic Vision is an English-style barleywine, not to be confused with our other barleywine offering that comes out in December, Guilt Trip, which is a hopped-up American version. Tragic Vision is graced with both English ale yeast and East Kent Goldings hops. This strong ale starts off with an explosion of toffee and dark fruit flavours (think raisin and prune), ending with a super smooth whiskey finish. It’s sure to warm you up this fall and winter, making it an excellent dessert beer or nightcap.
This special release will be available starting today in bottles only. Tragically, it will not be available for growler fills or pints.
