Bourbon Street Stout is an Imperial Stout that is aged in Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon barrels. Our Imperial Stout is brewed with a combination of pale, caramel, chocolate and roasted malts. Oats are also added to give the beer a fuller and sweeter taste. The roasted malts give the beer its dark color as well as its intense flavor and aroma. After fermentation the beer is cold aged for 6 weeks. This is necessary for all of the flavors of the malt and hops to balance and produce a very smooth flavor. After the cold aging the beer is transferred into the bourbon barrels. It is then aged for another 8 weeks to absorb all of the flavors from the barrels. The result is a strong stout that brings out the roasted flavors from the malt and the warming toasted, vanilla, and bourbon flavors from the barrels.

Taste is sweet caramel and vanilla with a bit of the oak and the alcohol on the back end . body is luscious and creamy. a very fine example of the best of blending imperial stouts and bourbon aging.

22 ounce bottle. The beer is a dark brown to black with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has wood, oats, bourbon, caramel, nuts, toffee. The taste is mostly sweet and boozy, and has a nice bready oaty character. Bigger body and lower carbonation. Pretty nice.

Thought I’d had this but I have no evidence .. . Pours a dark brown black .. Really happy foam .. Mild bourbon, burnt wood, and ink .. Mouth is, as expected, mild .. Nice and simple finish .. A step in the right direction once again for Abita .. . . Please don’t feed the monkeys!

650 ml. BB 03/27/16. Robe brune très foncée avec une tête que je pourrais qualifier de petite mais de tenace. Des parfums de vanille, de chocolat, de caramel et de vodka viennent se loger dans mes narines. Des saveurs de chocolat, de bourbon, d’alcool blanc, de malts rôtis, de caramel, de guimauve et de noix de coco visitent mes papilles. Une bouche épaisse avec une sensation habituellement laissée par le lactose. Un jeu mou des bulles. Une finale qui montre sans gêne un alcool qui fait un travail d’assèchement. Plus ou moins facile à boire. Définitivement pas dans les ligues majeurs. Ceci dit, loin d’être désagréable. Comme le sexe et la pizza, quoi.
