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.

AirForceHops (7129) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Draft Extreme Beer Fest 2016. Pitch black color, Thin tan head. Aroma is very light ginger bread with bourbon and chocolate notes.

Flavor chewy molasses, dark chocolate nuances, honey with a mild gingersnap cookie. The Bourbon is lasting and does wonders bring all the flavors together. Nice full, thick mouthfeel. I don’t even taste the alcohol. Very well constructed and I can’t believe how great this is! I would seek out a bottle.

Yes. Fantastic. Big Graham cracker scent and taste. Cinnamon, sugars and the bourbon barrel brings in some extra booze for a soothing bite. Nice dark coloring and palate is thick. Tap

25.4 oz bottle, my 100th rated Spice/Herb/Vegetable! Dark brown with a creamy beige head. Nose is bourbon, ginger, coffee and caramel with hints of black cherry. Coating medium to full body with a tang finishing sticky with soft carb. Taste is bourbon, candied ginger, vanilla and coconut milk. A bit burnt on the backside with residual spice. I’m not sure the bourbon is the best compliment for the ginger but still tasty.
