Tasting Notes:

XII XI XIII is an American Barleywine Ale with aromas of caramelized malt sugar, dark cherries, figs and pine. It was boiled for over six hours to help develop flavors of caramel, raisins, vanilla and resinous hop bitterness.  XII XI XIII has a luscious mouthfeel and finishes with a warming alcohol that will allow the beer to age gracefully for years to come.
