COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What could make our Cavatica Stout even better? Bourbon! We let our house stout sit in Four Roses Bourbon Barrels for several months. There in the dark, bourbon-enriched barrels, the beer soaked up as much bourbon quality as it could before we sent it off to the bright tank. With an up-front bourbon taste backed by our dark, malty stout, the Bourbon Barrel Cavatica is a deliciously potent brew that demands a taste.

Bomber, 2014 vintage, thanks Craig! Rich roasted malt aroma with notes of dark chocolate, licorice, vanilla, bourbon and oak. Pours black with a decent mocha brown head that has excellent retention and lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt, dark chocolate and licorice to go with a nice, full body and slick, viscous mouthfeel. Finishes smooth and a bit dry with bourbon, vanilla and oak flavors with the rich roasted malt taking over again at the end. Excellent imperial stout.

hopscotch (11495) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle... Pours clear and black with flickers of crimson and a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. The aroma features piles of raw oak, Tennessee whiskey and a dab of toasted coconut. Medium to full-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is lightly roasty with tannic and lightly acrid notes of whiskey and white oak. Smooth finish. Toasty and mellow - not boozy or hot. Bottle courtesy of hannont!
