Brewed by Firestone Walker Brewing (Duvel-Moortgat)
A Merry Cherry Stout is our very limited release for Christmas 2015. In late 2013 we acquired two special oak barrels that had been used to age bourbon whiskey before being refilled with spiced cherry bitters. We decided to fill the barrels with Bravo, our Imperial Brown Ale, which is one of our best vehicles for carrying barrel flavor. Two years of aging in our barrel cellar lent the beer a huge nose of spiced Christmas cookies and cherry liqueur. We then decided to blend the barrels with just the right amount of Milk Stout to balance silky milk chocolate, spiced cookie, and cherry liqueur in a warming stout to perfectly accompany your holiday celebrations.
