We are very excited to release a beer that is very much in our wheelhouse – a Baltic Porter aged in a New England Barrel Company Bourbon Barrel. The result is a ridiculously smooth 9.3 ABV% beer that boasts aromas of sweet dark chocolate, roast, and fig, with flavors of dark chocolate, oak, raisin, cherry, and roast, finishing with notes of fruity caramel, vanilla, and coffee, with a lingering alcohol warmth.
This luscious beer will be released on Wednesday, September 27th in bottles and on draft, alongside three other carefully crafted Rare Breed creations.
The beers include:
– Annette & Nicole’s Excellent Adventure — (9.2% ABV)- Manhattan Barrel-Aged Dopplebock with flavors of bready / biscuity malt upfront, followed by notes of cherry and caramel, finishing with a pop of oaky bourbon and a lingering toffee sweetness.
– Peach Brandy Barrel-Aged Scottish Ale – 5.5% ABV – Features aromas of peach gummy rings and tastes like toasted brown bread with a schmear of tangy peach jam. The barrel contributes notes of oak, hints of brandy, a subtle smokiness, and a dry finish.
– Circle of Strangers Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout– 11.1% ABV – This ridiculously smooth and luxurious imperial stout features flavors and aromas of port wine, dark chocolate, and tangy dark fruit jam, with some mild notes of oak and rum. The body on this beer is rich and full, coating the tongue with smile-inducing boozy warmth. You won’t want to miss this one!
Come on by and try all four on draft, and grab some bottles for yourself – or friends!
