COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A limited release beer as 400 liters was aged for 6 months in Jim Beam Bourbon oak barrels from the USA. This beer is named after Louie, the original cat that inspired Boxing Cat as the company name. This velvety beer contains several roasted malts including a light dash of smoked malt. The addition of coffee adds a rich complexity to this beer with notes of chocolate, coffee, bourbon, vanilla along with some subtle smokiness. The use of fragrant hops offsets the malt backbone of this beer as they contribute a balanced bitterness and hop bouquet. A truly complex stout with many layers of flavor.
