COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To celebrate our Sweet Sixteen, we made this Anniversary beer that builds itself on the shoulders of its predecessors. Using a bigger, bolder imperial stout, we age this beer for 21 months in oak bourbon barrels. The result - rich, decadent bourbon, vanilla and toffee; complimented by the chocolate and roast of the stout. Enjoy this beer from our Gold Medal winning Anniversary Series, because Sixteen is a milestone, but our life is just beginning.

wheresyourball (546) - El Cajon, California, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle from Austin - thanks. Pours dark brown with a mocha head. Nose is huge chocolate sweetness, with malt, toffee, oak. Flavor is vanilla, chocolate, malt, toffee, light coffee. Slightly more watery mouthfeel than I was expecting. Had a few sips that reminded me of Peruvian Morning. Really good.

Clownoisseur (367) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Pour was black, fairly opaque, small brown head leaving little lace. Aromas are bold roast, bourbon, oak, hints of vanilla, anise, cocoa and char. Taste is nicely balanced brown sugar/caramel, earth, cocoa, dark roasted malt, anise that melds into vanilla, bourbon and oak. Finishes with a touch of heat, but nicely balanced with a soft creamy body and bold barrel notes. Nice stuff!

Koelschtrinker (13120) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 29, 2015
Rund würziger Antrunk, leicht bitter, intensiv schokoladig. Dafür für meinen Geschmack etwas zu süß, insgesamt aber rund, auch wenn die aufkommende Trockenheit besonders zum Ende hin stört. Herb würzig, cremig. 11/10/9/9/10/9
