Yards Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Bart Barley Wine
Yards Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Bart Barley Wine at Varga Bar in Philadelphia. The beer pours an amber color with a frothy off-white colored head. The aroma consists of caramel, toffee, raisin, bourbon, and vanilla. The taste is sweet and smooth despite the bourbon alcohol bite to it. There is raisin, caramel, fig, vanilla, and oak flavors all mixed together, providing a wonderful blend. The alcohol content is 10.3% ABV. I was quite impressed with the barrel aged barley wine, as the beer stands tall against the bourbon, but adds a great accent to it.
