The name "Devilís Heart of Gold" comes from what they call the "Devilís Cut". When a bourbon ages in a barrel, a portion of the bourbon evaporates - this is called the "Angelís share". Another portion of the bourbon gets absorbed into the new oak barrel - this is called the "Devilís cut". Therefore, the Heart of Gold beer aging in the barrel starts to absorb back some of the Devilís Cut and hence the name "Devilís Heart of Gold".
We took our Heart of Gold and aged it in a Knob Creek 9-year old barrel from our friends at The Wine and Cheese Place in October 2011. The beer rested in these barrels for 7 months. 204 bottles will be released exclusively at The Wine and Cheese Place.
