Oloroso Barrel Aged—tasting notes
Oloroso is a barley wine by Bidassoa Basque Brewery, part of their Dark Series. It is barrel-aged in oloroso wine, rounding out a sweet and dark beer with a lot of malt presence and caramel notes and alcoholic finish.
Barley Wine is an American reinterpretation of classic English Barley Wine. Color ranges from light amber to medium copper, and aromas are quite hoppy, with floral notes of American hops. Taste is ballance between malt sweetness and hop bitterness, but the ballance is always towards bitter, with a strong alcoholic character. It is less hoppy and sweeter than an Imperial IPA.
