OG 1.085 FG: 1.012 Merlot Barrel, gen 1 - 9 months ABV: 9.5
For the second barrel project, we brewed up a big Belgian Quad. Most of the participants brewed at Left Hand on Big Brew Day 2010. The rich, malty base blends wonderfully with the heady fruitiness of the trappist yeast we used. After 9 months in the barrel, the wine and barrel character adds a fantastic depth of flavor.
