送り犬 木樽熟成 (Okuriinu - Barrel Aged)

Okuriinu was originally brewed in August of 2019, and while a portion of it was released in October, it was the first beer we made with the intention of barrel ageing. We used malts like Golden Promise, Munich, and Vienna alongside flaked wheat to create as much body as possible. Our house Belgian yeast ensured that the finish was still dry while also providing a strong background fruit flavor.

15 months in whiskey barrels has imparted a firm aroma of spirits that lifts the rich malt character. This extended ageing has also contributed a very round and soft mouthfeel while also creating flavors of brown sugar, vanilla, and toffee. While not dominant, the background yeast character is still noticeable, and the dry finish keeps this flavorful beer quite drinkable despite the high ABV and strong barrel character.
