COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gingerbread Stout Aged in Virginia Bourbon Barrels
Hardywood Gingerbread Stout, described by BeerAdvocate as “freagin’ Christmas in a bottle,” is an imperial milk stout brewed with vanilla beans, cinnamon, fresh Casselmonte Farm baby ginger and Bearer Farms wildflower honey. Gingerbread Stout is then matured in Virginia bourbon barrels, where it adapts an incredibly mellow character with oak, caramel and bourbon undertones, and emerges 12 weeks later as Bourbon GBS. A festive blend of spice character laces this rich, chocolatey stout, which warms the palate and the soul.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2017 On tap at RVA taproom 11/12/17. Pours dark with small amount of lacing. Nice gingerbread aroma. Sweetish but not overly so and has a pleasant aftertaste. Bourbon Barrel version is much smoother and spices are nicely mellowed. Bourbon sits nicely in the background and really improves on what was already a really nice spiced stout.

Lots of spices in here! Over medium sweet and medium bodied. Almost full bodied with soft slick feel. A bit artificial but it definately works here.

Aroma chocolate chip cookie in a bourbon barrel. Very unusual, very tasty. Like a fudge bake shop in a bourbon barrel house. Some cocoa bitter. Lovely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
