COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our friends over at Kentucky’s own Willett Distillery have one kind of barrel: wood. And they put two things in them: Bourbon and Rye. We were fortunate enough to get some of their Bourbon barrels, and we put our Imperial Stout in them. It’s a chocolatey, coffee-y, smoky, Bourbon-y beast of a barrel-aged thing. Word.

2016 One Hitter Series.

12 oz, 2017. Lots of rye spice. Light barrel, bit of whiskey. Smooth. Pretty mediocre ba stout. The real highlight of this beer is the price. $12 for a six pack of a barrel aged imperial stout. Can’t beat that.

Draft at Eureka. Wow! Right from the start, a real pleasure. Nothing exceptional on the pour. Sweet, chocolaty aroma, whiskey, chocolate. Taste explodes on the pallet, chocolate, vanilla, whiskey, sweet and roasty. Alcohol heat is present and increases in the gullet. Really nicely done.k

Deep pitch black. Thick dense creamy tan head. Huge sweet chocolate and licorice aromas and flavors. Some whiskey notes as well but complimentary and not over done. Smooth creamy palate and lingering milk chocolate trailer. Very tasty.
