COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What happens when 8 maids lay down in bourbon barrels for about a year? This: a rare variation to the 8th beer in our 12 Days of Christmas series. The Belgian-style imperial milk stout emerges this holiday season with deeper, richer, darker, more velvety milk chocolate notes, along with amplified roastiness and ripples of caramel, coconut and vanilla character. Drink it alongside the standard 2015 release to revel in the udderances achieved in barrel-aging, and lay a few down for up to three years to be enjoyed upon the release of 12 Drummers Drumming.

Bottle from Hoarders, Great aroma! Mellow bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, oak. Taste is sweet and chocolatey, milky, a bit roasty and great bourbon on the finish. Body is quite heavy and smooth. I also get a bit of warming alcohol but not overwhelming at all for the 13.7. Really nice overall, sweet, bourbon and chocolatey. Wow!

75CL via Hoarders. Black in the glass, brown edges. 1 finger tan head. some alcohol legs. The aroma is fantastic. mounds bars, coconut, chocolate, vanilla, whiskey and cinnamon sugar. Udderly delicious. The lactose sweetness comes on strong at the finish and lingers with cocoa and milk. It's really a great compliment to this strong-bier. Bourbon, cinnamon, sugar, cloves, peppermint, charcoal, burnt oak. really tasty.

Bottle @ Bruery Bonanza 2017. Black pour with a frothy tan head. Insane bourbon nose. Not much to find behind that but I guess there's some roast at least. Sweet, tiny bitter & malty taste.
