I know we as brewers often make an RIS with say bourbon soaked oak chips and even perhaps some vanilla, but would it be a crime against nature to do the same thing with a barleywine? I've never seen a recipe as such, but some dark part of my brain tells me it might be quite good. Any input from anyone who has tried such a creature?

I did a barrel aged barleywine last year. Turned out great! They take a while to age, but well worth the effort. Just cracked open a bottle last night.
Give it a try, you won't regret it!
