Arctic Devil Barley Wine, aptly named after the ferocious wolverine of the north, is an English-style barley wine that ages to perfection in oak barrels for several months before being blended, bottled and released in the fall. This highly acclaimed and awarded barley wine is a classic annual release of Midnight Sun, where a deceptively simple grain bill turns into big bold flavors hosting hints of caramel, vanilla, slight fruitiness, and strong malt sweetness that claw to the surface with every sip.
For 2022, we brewed two ferocious AD variations using two different world-class bourbon barrels – Weller & Blanton’s. Blanton’s bourbon was the world’s first “single barrel” bourbon, famous for its deep aromatics of nutmeg and spices, and strong notes of caramel and corn. Blanton’s sweet & spicy flavor profiles compliment Arctic Devil perfectly, and we can’t wait for you to unleash the wonderful flavors that wait within.
