A blend of our Milk Chocolate Stout & Export Stout aged on tart cherries in Belle Meade Bourbon barrels for nearly 12 months. Bourbon, cherry, oak, and chocolate notes dominate the profile followed by a smooth warmth from the alcohol. Truly one to be enjoyed slowly. (O.G.=1.078/IBUs)

Tasted on 7/22/14 from a 32oz growler picked up at the brewpub earlier in the day. Pours completely opaque dark cola brown with a thin, but slow-forming brown head that leaves very thin lace. The nose is a really nice blend of milk chocolate, toasted cocoa nibs, plenty of maple and toffee bourbon, vanilla oak, a touch of char, and just a hint of tart cherry. The flavor is about the same with the milk chocolate, vanilla oak, and maple/toffee dominant, and the nib bitterness and cherries very faint in the background. The body is full with just under, but perfect carbonation for the style, and a long vanilla, toffee and maple bourbon, and the tart cherry really starting to shine, finish. Very nice!

Growler @ casa de Greg. Thanks to &y for sending! Deep brown, slightly hazy appearance with a light brown head. Slightly boozy, a bit oxidized, chocolate oatmeal aroma with some bourbon and fruits. Nice body. Not too thick. Granola, rich chocolate, caramel, a bit boozy flavor. Kind of hll beer.
