The “Populator” Barrel Aged Barleywine is a true masterpiece from Diebolt Brewing Company. As a barleywine, it’s a strong ale that leans heavily on malt characteristics for its flavor profile. This brew, however, takes things a step further with the addition of barrel aging, which imparts additional layers of complexity and depth.
The 2015 vintage of Populator boasts an impressive ABV (Alcohol By Volume), typical of barleywines, but it’s the intricate flavor that truly sets it apart. On the palate, you’ll find notes of rich caramel and toasted malts, balanced by a subtle hop bitterness. The barrel aging process adds nuances of vanilla and oak, along with a hint of bourbon warmth that complements the robust malt backbone.
Its deep amber color is inviting, topped with a soft, off-white head, making it as pleasing to the eye as it is to the taste buds. The aroma is a captivating blend of sweet malt, dark fruit, and the unmistakable scent of bourbon from its time spent in the barrel.
Despite its strength, the Populator is surprisingly smooth, with a velvety mouthfeel that makes each sip a delight. It’s a beer that invites you to take your time, savoring each complex layer of flavor.
The Populator is not just a beer; it’s an experience – a testament to Diebolt’s commitment to craft and quality. Its recent recognition at the Great American Beer Festival only confirms what fans of this brew have known all along: the Populator is truly something special.
