Renewale Robust Porter that has been aged in Heaven Hills Bourbon Barrels with cherries.
Bittersweet chocolate, caramel, pleasant fruity esters and a smooth malt creaminess combine to create a flavorful, drinkable and true-to-style Robust Porter. The bourbon barrels bring out vanilla and a hint of coconut while the cherries brind fruit to the nose and a subtle tartness.

On tap at fruit beer fest. Light watery flavor with heavy bourbon. No fruit at all with heavy spirity bourbon and oak taste. Base beer is not big enough to hold up to the barrel.

Dark brown in color, with a thin tan head. The barrel aging with bourbon add to the flavor quite nicely. A super big bourbon flavor with the hint of fruit.
