Life On Tap Episode #357: Sound of Exclamation (Threes Brewing Sound of Exclamation - Bourbon barrel-aged English Barleywine)

Dan triples down with another 500ml bottle from Threes Brewing: Sound of Exclamation, a Blanton’s Barrel-aged English Barleywine.

Threes Brewing Sound of Exclamation

STYLE: Barleywine Aged in Bourbon Barrels
INGREDIENTS: Simpson Golden Promise, DRC; Magnum and Fuggle hops
ABV: 11.0%
AVAILABILITY: 500ml bottles (Limited)

Stats above taken from the brewery’s bottle and website.


Medium brown in color with a thin head.


Dried fruit – mix of raisins and dates with hints of caramel and oak.


Lightly-salted caramel hits first as it trails into a darker caramel, followed by the continuation of dried date and fig from the nose and a woody element on the finish.


Velvety and full-bodied with a good degree of weight on the palate.


Definitely one for post-dinner/dessert, though I could also see pairing this with a medium-strength cigar. Food-wise, go with a gamey-style dish or for dessert, carrot cake all the way or perhaps Brazo de Reina.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.

All music on this show came to us from the now defunct Music Alley.
