Scourge Of The Dude
The Dude strikes again! A sequel to The Dude's Bane, Scourge of the Dude is the second release in our barrel-aged Dude Series. Born on our pilot system then aged for 8 months in bourbon barrels, this Barleywine uses a blend of caramel malts, toasted rye and a hint of smoked malt. Although strong bourbon and oak characters from the barrel dominate up front, the Scourge opens up with subtle raisin-like notes and a dry, tannic finish.
And although totally in our Shipping Dude's way in the cooler for eight months, we felt the barrels really tied the room together.
