Woolly Bugger 2016

<p>A staple among the annually released Barley Wines is Howe Sound&rsquo;s Wooly Bugger. This beer is released each winter and comes in at 11% alcohol and 75 IBUs. Pouring from the bomber bottle it is rich and dark brown in colour topped with two fingers of head. The aroma is a touch boozy with notes of dried fruit, caramel, toffee and a touch of bitterness. Tasting the beer it is big bodied with a creamy, alcohol-rich character. The notes of lightly burnt caramel take charge on the palate with toffee notes and a slight, dried cherry character. It is no denying that this is an intense beer and the burnt bitter character gives balance to a sweetness that is bigger than some. As always the Wooly Bugger is a must hit on the Barley Wine circuit. Pick up a couple bottles while you can, one for this year and one to cellar for a rainy day.</p>
