Anderson Valley Bourbon Barrel Stout

Anderson Valley Bourbon Barrel Stout: 4.0 – This again suffers from the classic problem that many beers fall into with barrel aging, in that you don’t really get a nice woody flavor, but a more mellow sweet flavor that overall is really not what you want from the beer. Some have gotten aged beers in bourbon barrels right, but it’s far and few between.

Allagash Bourbon Barrel Black

Allagash Bourbon Barrel Black: 8.5 – Continuing this week with amazing beers we get Allagash’s Bourbon Barrel Black which is their Black but aged in Bourbon Barrels. Now when we toured the Allagash brewery they mentioned they were doing this, and our thought was what sexual favours would be the best suited to get us a barrel. But alas we waited, and boy was it worth it. This beer is dark, and unlike other barrel aged beers, it gets it fucken right.
