COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
John Henry Three Lick Spiker Ale is an imperial stout brew style that has been bourbon oak aged. This beer is brewed with three different dark roasted malts creating chocolate flavors and a dark appearance. Oats are also added for additional body and flavor. Combined with the pale and caramel malts, there are over 12,000 lbs. of barley in the brew. Cascade, Willamette, and Alsace Hops are the three hops added for a hoppy tasty and full aroma. After fermentation has been completed with our top fermenting ale yeast, conditioning starts and the fun begins. We condition our brew with bourbon oak and let the extended aging process take over. Hints of bourbon and vanilla from the oak come through in the aroma and flavor. This is a big beer that you can not pass up.

12-oz bottle pours a hazy dark brownish copper colored brew with a nice beige head that slowly dissipates to a thin creamy top. Aroma of coconut, bourbon, some caramel malt, and a touch of tart berrries. Taste is full bodied, bourbon character with some coconut, chocolate and caramel. Finish is semi-dry, some mild bitterness with a lingering bourbon aftertaste.

Wonderful oak roasted malt aroma on initial pour. Flavor of bourbon oak spirals comes through on every sip but unlike bourbon not really hot, more mellow and smoothing taste of the ale balancing out the roasted malt. A great session beer. Gets more robust and complex as it warms a bit and is exposed to the air.

A surprise find (for me) in a New Prague, Minnesota restaurant cooler, this poured black from the bottle with a thin, lace of foam. It delivered huge aromas of caramel, vanilla and bourbon and an equally huge taste, some chocolate and more of the bourbon. The roasted malts come out strongly. Its high alcohol content goes down smooth - the smoothest stout I have ever tasted.

Overall good beer. The bourbon wasn’t over powering like other beers I have had. I also had it on tap so that might of made a difference.
