COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Barrel Room Collection IV This batch of Big Black was split and aged in two carefully selected varieties of bourbon barrels hand picked for the chocolate, vanilla and coconut flavors they impart with extended aging, along with Madagascar vanilla beans and Ghanaian cocoa nibs. Once removed from the barrel, fresh Michigan tart cherries were added resulting in a well balanced stout with notes of vanilla, chocolate, cherry, oak and bourbon.

neongolden (1826) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2017
(On tap @ Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen, May 11/17) Nearly black colour with a pale tan head. Notes of cacao, dried red fruit, vanilla, dark caramel, umami, bourbon, woody, fairly substantial cherry that unfortunately drifts into a medicinal, astringent character on the finish. Rather dry overall. Light to moderate body for style, low carbonation. Decent, but I would prefer my cherry to avoid that medicine vibe, maybe a richer stout would have paired better.
