My Turn Series: Chad - Barley Wine
This one was cooked up by Chad, the cellarman here at Lakefront. Chad’s beer is a ramped-up barley wine style ale: rich, malty, multi-layered, and amber-copper. The off-white head liberates aromas of strawberry, dried-fruit, grapefruit, and papaya. The smooth, malt-forward flavor is equally complex, with undertones of caramel and toffee. Not overly sweet by any means—much like its namesake—organic Bravo hops balance the malt syrup sweetness, Chad’s beer finishes slightly spicy with a pleasurable alcohol warmth.
We recommend serving Chad as an after-dinner digestif. Chad will pair very well with the sharp flavors of an American-style Goronzola or a five year cheddar cheese. Chad’s dried-fruit flavors will rhyme with the nutty, fruity aroma of a rich Stilton cheese. Or, as Chad recommends, “This is a barley wine for a brownie.” We agree, Chad.
