About This Beer
Every year, the crew at Drake’s tastes their way through every Barleywine in their cellar, selecting only the very best rye, bourbon, and port barrel-aged brews to create this legendary annual release! And every year, fans snatch it up before the tree lots even appear.
To paraphrase Mariah Carey, all they want for Christmas is brew.
Each new vintage of this deeply complex Barleywine takes tasters on a sleigh ride through flavors of oaky vanilla, festive fig, and candied date. Vinous nuances from the port barrels jingle beside hints of whiskey caramel and slightly spicy rye. Let a sip linger on the tongue, and you may detect hints of coffee, toffee, and sugarplums.
