Flying Dog Wild Dog – Barrel Aged Horn Dog

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

This is a beer I’ve been looking for a long time and when I was offered it during a beer trade, I jumped on it.  Each Year Flying Dog puts out a new beer in their Wild Dog Series, several years ago they barrel aged some of their Horn Dog English style Barleywine in Oak Whiskey Barrels.  You may be asking why am I reviewing this beer instead of saving/cellaring it further.  I asked Matt Brophey, Head Brewer of Flying Dog, should I drink it now or cellar, he eluded to drinking it now since it was already several years old.  He also said it had a lot of vanilla when it was originally packaged, so that is something I’ll be looking for.flyingdog_bahorndog

Quercus Vitis Humulus is Latin for Oak Grape Hop.  Quercus Vitis Humlus is the latest beer from Otter Creeks imperial series.  Most of us remember Otter Creek as an unimpressive brewery, but over the last year that has changed dramatically.  Their first beer from this line was an incredible Russian Imperial Stout, followed by an equally impressive Imperial IPA, and now this very unique sounding Quercus Vitis Humulus.  This beer is a barley wine, that has been referemented with french grapes and then aged on lightly toasted oak.ottercreek_quercus2
