Westbound and Down Brewing Double Barrel Louie, exceptional balance in a svelte barleywine frame

On the eve of rauch Endgame might as well pop a double barrel barleywine from westbound and down brewing, YOURE FUCKIN OUT.

Idaho Springs [Stefan Yauchzee 🥔 points] Colorado. This beer is really good, so much depth and interplay between the port/peach bourbon aspect, vinous, figs, pruney dates but with a tight little old ale frame that gingerly releases the oaky clutch. It’s not a notchy bitter cask gearbox, if anything it’s almost too lithe in an Adam from the Wood sort of way. Really enjoyable if you like to tread the fruit leather path and eschew British confectionaries.
