COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At 10.5% abv this black as night ale is aged in Four Roses Bourbon Barrels for 6 months. The Bourbon Character of the barrels comes through nicely and pairs exquisitely with the rich dark malt flavors of coffee and chocolate. This is a rich beer that is made to be a full palate experience. Pair this one with a piece of dark chocolate or a side car of a nice bourbon and your night will be complete.

Sarlacc83 (1366) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Tap at Apex, post CBC A: Pure black body, legs, cappuccino head. N: Bourbon to start - coconut, caramel and vanilla - over cocoa, coffee, and roast. More coconut, raisin, fig, and more chocolate. T: Sweet, oaky, and a hint bitter. M: Heavy, oily body, no alcohool presence, soft carbonation. O: This reminds me quite a bit of Super Nebula. Which, as you’ll see, is a beer that I greatly enjoy. I hope Wicked Weed sends more beer to Oregon at some point.
