Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout with Pecans, Tahitian Vanilla, Sea Salt, and Milk Sugar
The components in this beer were each separately aged for the better part of the year in a variety of bourbon barrels, each hand-selected to hold a particular ingredient which could be used for unlimited blending opportunities down the road.
The making of the final product included most of a barrel containing in-house toasted pecans, a portion aging on Tahitian vanilla beans, and of course a barrel of the base beer. After combining these three components we then added just a touch of sea salt to add further complexity and depth.
Big time chocolate notes provided by the base beer which are complemented by notes of brown sugar, golden pecan pie, and caramel.
