COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bourbon Barrel Soaked Sustenance Beer is our spring Schwarzbier (black lager) aged in bourbon barrels for 10 months. It features rich roasted malt qualities with bold flavors of vanilla, charred oak, and even a slight nuttiness. The light, crisp finish makes this bourbon soaked beer light in flavor, which is wonderful because it highlights the complexities of the bourbon aging process. The light body also makes it an ideal beer for a springtime refreshment.

On tap at HopCat during RBSG. Poured a black color with a large frothy brown head that was mostly lasting and produced excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted malt, bourbon, wood and vanilla aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted malt, bourbon and wood bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Standout drinkable brew.
