Named in honor of the doggy denizens of Brussels, this hybrid beer is a mix of what we love best in a big, roasty stout, but fermented with a Belgian yeast, which brings out a beautiful fruity nose. We set aside a portion of the batch to age in bourbon barrels to allow the stouts chocolate and caramel flavors to marry with the woods natural vanilla and toastiness. The final blend pairs well with both savory dishes and your favorite desserts.

Bomber from BottleSelect.com. Pours dark brown black with a tan head. Aroma is bourbon, smooth dark malt, and darkish fruit. Full bodied, or at least nearly so. Flavor is chocolate, bourbon, smooth dark malt, treacle and something more like dates than plums. Wood is not strong, but present. Actually wood seems to get strong in the finish. As does coffee. There’s a lot going on with this one.
