COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A collaboration with the Holiday Ale Festival, this Barrelworks project is a blend of one-year-old Heaven Hill Bourbon barrel-aged Velvet Merkin that was blended with a touch of a young Gueuze from Firestone’s sour program. The result is a lighter, brighter, but still barrel-forward Merkin for your sipping pleasure.

Taster at Holiday Ale Festival. Really balanced combo of dark stout flavor and slight sourness from the gueuze.

Dark black in color, thick an head. Lots of aroma and flavor. I loved the bourbon flavors and finish. This was a super beer. Lots of sour and barrel flavors linger.

Tap @ Holiday Ale Fest 2012... Poured near black with a lacy, gray head. Aroma had hints of salty brine and vinegar. The base beer of Velvet Merkin came through but was definitely tarnished by a butter wood and pickled vegetal tone. Why was this made?
