STOUT AGED IN BOURBON BARRELS WITH CACAO NIBS, VANILLA BEANS, CHILES AND CINNAMON ADDED. ​Weve been thinking long and hard about one of our all-time favorites and how to put our personal lil twist on it. Or is this a big twist? Hmmm. Well have to think, and drink, on that one.

5 oz from tap into sniffer at Churchkey in DC. Really tasty, but honestly it tastes like a less-well-balanced Prairie Bomb. Vanilla comes strong on the front with some malt and a hint if the cocoa. Finish is lightly spicy then heavy booze then moderate spice. The type of beer I want to drink by the campfire while watching the snow fall around me in December.

Tap into a snifter showing pitch black with no head. The nose is exactly like hot cocoa. This is great. The palate is light bodied and lightly carbonated. Flavors of dry milk chocolate or hot cocoa and a slightly alcohol spice. Not much else.
