God, you're making me want to brew this.

Looks fantastic.

Actually if he's serious he could talk to this guy, he might be willing to part with some.

I wouldn't be making the exact same beer. Just use the same base recipe and alternative sources for the honey. I'm assuming it would still be a great beer.

A much needed update...Because I couldn't resist.



It's been a year on the oak barrel. I couldn't resist pulling a sample. It needs to finally get into the bottle and sit til my 50th. This 17.5 percent ABV monster of a barleywine with 50 year old honey still continues to evolve over the three years since we brewed it.

I can't even describe the flavors I'm tasting, chocolate, vanilla, oak, raisins, bourbon, caramel, toffee, coffee, marshmallow. It is the most insane beer I've ever made...or even tasted. A once in a lifetime brew. The funny thing is that it seems to actually increased in alcoholic bite, rather than mellowed. As if it pulled every dram of liquor out of the wood of the barrel.

You really make me want to drive to wherever the hell you are and beg for a sip. Sounds amazing and moreso every time i read the thread. It also sounds amazing that you are seemingly more optimistic about being here to taste it on your actual 50th birthday. And then some. Cheers.

Been a long while since I been poking around here, that beer is looking amazing!

I moved from AZ to IL so I might make a few bigger brew events, maybe try and meet you and a few others at some point.
