The artisans at Tusk & Grain have done it again with the release of their second Barrel Blend. Boasting notes of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and toffee, this new blend of Barleywine and two different Imperial Stouts opens up the book on extravagance. With barrels ranging in age of 12 to 24 months, this beer has been carefully blended to elevate each component, resulting in a tapestry of flavors and aromas that only a synthesis of strong beers can weave.

“The backbone for this Barrel Blend is the barleywine that has been aged for 24 months in
Woodford Reserve Bourbon barrels, allowing it to develop overwhelmingly rich components of caramel, toffee, oak, and bourbon. During this time it has mellowed and developed a sweetness that perfectly balances it's assertive alcohol content,” says Greg Peters, Tusk & Grain Cellar Master. He adds, “With the addition of a 2 year old Imperial Stout, and a one year old Export Stout, elements of chocolate and roast further add to the complexity of this beer bringing rich, dark fruits to the nose and a finish that is surprisingly smooth and drinkable. Overall, this beer, for obvious reasons, can be seen as a more mature and refined take on Barrel Blend 1.”

Tusk & Grain Barrel Blend No. 02
ABV 12.94%.

As part of this new barrel release Saint Archer is excited to announce the re-release of the original Tusk & Grain lineup this holiday season as a limited edition collection of beers. This re-release will be the last time some of the original Tusk & Grain beers will be available to the public.
