Rake the Woods

Body: Medium

About the Ale:A portion of our latest batch of chocolaty, caramelly Porter took a detour on it's way to the taps. Months ago we filled two 60 gallon barrels that had previously aged California Syrah. The barrels contribute noticeable oak, tannin, and vanilla notes. The wine in the wood contributes subtle dark fruit (blueberry and cherry come to mind) and a hint of tobacco. The added complexity of the wine barrel give Rake the Woods another dimension, but at 6.3% ABV, it's still very much a dark velvety ale.
