COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To celebrate our Sweet Sixteen, we made this Anniversary beer that builds itself on the shoulders of its predecessors. Using a bigger, bolder imperial stout, we age this beer for 21 months in oak bourbon barrels. The result - rich, decadent bourbon, vanilla and toffee; complimented by the chocolate and roast of the stout. Enjoy this beer from our Gold Medal winning Anniversary Series, because Sixteen is a milestone, but our life is just beginning.

Bottle from Austin - thanks. Pours dark brown with a mocha head. Nose is huge chocolate sweetness, with malt, toffee, oak. Flavor is vanilla, chocolate, malt, toffee, light coffee. Slightly more watery mouthfeel than I was expecting. Had a few sips that reminded me of Peruvian Morning. Really good.

Pitch black with small brown head. The bourbon aroma is upfront, with the roasted malt notes; later there are notes of spices, wood. Moderate sweetness, mostly because the alcohol is very strong; deep chocolate flavor, molasses, touch of tar, some alcohol.
Excellent.

Oakes (18472) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2017
Very dark brown. Thin head. So pretty big aroma on this one - bourbon, chocolate, touch of coffee and brown sugar. Burly alcohol note. Rich and sweet, some vanillins, touch of wood, the sweetness of really old rum. Finish is quite boozy, quite sweet, lots of bourbon notes, and a fair bit of sweet chocolate, maybe with a touch of almond. Good brew.
