11.4% ABV, Draft
Appearance: Caramel color with a small head.
Aroma: Vanilla with some dark fruit and caramel.
Taste: Vanilla is definitely present, as is caramel. There’s a bit of a roasted malt profile to this, as well as some bourbon on the backend.
Mouthfeel: On the lighter side of strong bodied. Boozy finish makes it a slow sipper.
New Holland’s Pilgrim’s Dole is a barleywine-style ale with quite the flavor profile. Aged in bourbon barrels, vanilla is the name of the game here — and coupled with caramel and some roast-like qualities, this high gravity brew is certainly a treat.
