This is the 2011 Vintage of Renaissance Tribute Barleywine. The beer has been stored upright and cold for its entire life, and it is aging gracefully. This edition of Tribute Barleywine is brewed in the English style, and it has complex flavours of maple syrup, hazelnut and dark fruit layered over a caramel and biscuit malt backbone.
Tribute Barleywine goes great with stews and rich meat dishes, and also works great with chocolate forward desserts and creamy and/or funky cheeses.
