Well this is a first – barleywine aged in Irish Oak casks – along with some original Irish artwork too!
A deep rich sweet aroma greets the nose.
The sweetness is complimented by a touch of woody tannic spice on the palate which gently fades away on the long finish.
Pushing the boundaries of barleywine.
8 Degrees Brewing collaboration with Midleton Distillery has delivered some wonderful beer!

Very rich tasting.
A mountain of a beer at 11.5%.
Part of 8 Degrees Brewing Irish Munro series – this beer’s casks are in turn used to age a whiskey creating the Crested Devil’s Ladder version.
As both 8 Degrees & Crested are owned by Pernod Ricard – it’s great to see further developments from this partnership.
Enjoy them while you can!
It’s a stout.
It’s aged in Jameson Whiskey Casks.
It’s treacly & rich,
And it packs a punch.
Can you pot the Black Ball?
