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.

Above average but doesn't really stand out in weird of big imperial stouts. Very boozy and chocolate heavy. A weird off taste (somewhat metalic) that didn't much hurt enjoyment of the beer. Fun to try.

On draft in Kenosha,WI. Has a thin head and pours black but could use more body for an imperial stout based beer. Taste is bourbon and chocalate forward. Aged in pappy van winkle barrels this is a very stellar and unique selection. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Avenue Pub in New Orleans. I had no idea this was some special beer....it was just on their beer list and I decided to give it a shot....only to find out that I had gotten the last pour and the keg was kicked. Lucky me. Poured a standard dark brown, light tan head. Smells strongly of vanilla and coffee, and taste is very heavy on the bourbon. Very, very boozy overall. Not a bad beer, but doesn’t really stand up against the cream of the crop barrel-aged stouts.
