Join us for the January 17 release of Inbound BrewCo’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout.
In August, we fed a batch of our dark, rich, and smokey Russian Imperial Stout straight from the fermentors into heavy charred white oak barrels that were once filled with Buffalo Trace’s famous bourbon. The heavy charring gives the bourbon its unique flavor, which eventually makes its way into our Russian Imperial Stout. Here’s how the distillery describes their bourbon:
Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is distilled, aged and bottled at the most award-winning distillery in the world. Made from the finest corn, rye and barley malt, this whiskey ages in new oak barrels for years in century old warehouses until the peak of maturity. The taste is rich and complex, with hints of vanilla, toffee, and candied fruit. The smooth finish lingers on the palate.
When the barrels come to us, the wood is still infused with those rich vanilla and toffee bourbon flavors, which are then imparted into the Russian Imperial Stout that fills them.
The result of five months of barrel aging is a rich, fruity-estery, and slightly sweet Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout. You’ll want a bottle to share and several to save. 11.4% ABV // 77 IBUs
