Our old favorite twisted! We took our Absolute Rat Bastard Ale and aged it for four months in 18 year bourbon barrels. Medium bodied ale with a subdued hop character. Oak, caramel and light fruit notes dominate this brew. This is a very limited edition brew, so enjoy it while it lasts. O.G. 1.065 SRM. 19 IBU’s 32.9

Personal Milestone: Illinois Rating #800 (out of 4008) !!!!!
From the tap this pours an intensely dark brown body, nearly black, with a scrawny tan ring in place of a head. That’s soon gone. The aroma is strong on the Bourbon, which is okay with me since I used to drink lots of it. (Then the divorce was final.) There’s also some dark caramel and a burnt wood bitterness. Lots of Bourbon in the flavor along with caramel, toffee, oak, and alcohol. A very decent Winter sipper.

On tap at the pub, December 2007. Ruby red (very dark) with no head. Oaky, bourbon aroma is huge, rounded out by caramel and toffee and a slight alcohol burn. Bourbon flavor is in your face along with lots of sticky toffee and mucho alcohol. Very syrupy palate. A big beer for sure, and the best of my visit.
