Cascade Barrel Aged Crude Diesel


Brewed by Cascade Brewing
Portland, Oregon USA
Style: Imperial Stout | Ratings: 5 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 8.8%
A barrel aged stout brewed with chocolate and roasted malts, black strap molasses and dark Belgian candy sugar, then aged for 8 months in Heaven Hills Bourbon barrels and Pinot Noir barrels. Now over 13 months old, the layers of flavors are just starting to unfold. Dark sweet chocolate, coffee, Bourbon and molasses with hints of vanilla greet you in the nose. Dark coffee and bitter-sweet chocolate intermingle with the roasted malts and dark molasses to finish with a noticeable Bourbon heat and a lingering sweet, dark vanilla finish. Look for notes of milk chocolate, coconut and cherry as it warms up.
