Silva Stout took a lot of patience. We aged our Double Stout in oak bourbon barrels for seventeen months. Flavors are very complex. It starts off with dark chocolate truffles rolled in cocoa powder. Next is the vanilla and wood notes, with rich cherry-like fruitiness. After racking and filtering the ale, we blended in just the right amount of freshly brewed Double Stout to provide the perfect balance of bourbon barrel aging and freshness. Enjoy the culmination of years of flavor development now – no further aging required!

Cappuccinofärgat skum. kaffe i doften. (ingen anteckning om bourbon i doft?). Balanserad beska. Viss spritighet som ej längre är något problem så här långt in i en provning.

Bottle share at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Thanks Alex! 12oz. bottle. Pours a jet black, oil looking substance. Thin tan head. Aroma was strong chocolate, cocoa nibs, vanilla, oak, and dark fruits. (Love the aroma) The taste was amazing with deep chocolate and nibs, vanilla, oak barrel, and a thick lactose. Creamy mouth with a thick finish. Full body, light carbonation. The flavors and balance is quite amazing. Love it!

Poured from bottle at GABF. This wasnt on draft during my session. Silva has great smooth bourbon aroma and taste. Some roastiness and ends abruptly. Not a lot of complexity, especially for a 17month barrel aged variant of a tasty base stout. Maybe this was aged for TOO long, guys.

Pours black with a small coffee colored head fading into a ring along the side of the snifter. Lots of barrel presence in the aroma. Vanilla, chocolate, brown sugar, dark fruits and a kiss of bourbon. A lot roastier flavor than the nose lets on. A little vanilla and booze sneaks up at the back end, but it’s very well balanced. Roast turns into sweet booze with no element standing out over another. Medium carbonation and a thicker body feel. I could use a touch more on the body, but that’s just nitpicking. Very good stout that I hope to get again. I love the flavors and if it had a bit more body, I think I’d prefer it to BCBS. As it is, it’s still very close.
