This locomotive of flavour was born in 2010 and is brewed closer to an English Barley Wine style–a bit sweeter and darker than the American variant. In 2012 we decided to stoke the boiler a little bit and barrel-aged Trainwreck in select bourbon barrels still wet from the distillery. The toasted caramel and vanilla overtones meshed so well that we had to send it around the track again, but this year’s Trainwreck is aged with younger oak this time. In order to experience the full complexity of this beer, it’s best to allow Trainwreck to warm up a little bit to cellar temperature (4C). Also, at 10% chugging is not advised on this train.
Pours a deep amber colour with a slight white head that’s sweet in aroma. Carefully aged with oak, flavours of toasted caramel and hints of vanilla are enveloped in warm malt sweetness that’s velvet smooth. Best enjoyed at cellar temperature (4C).
Trainwreck is specially brewed for the Snowcase Pack!
