It’s the day you’ve all been waiting for: Anchorage Brewing’s highly anticipated A Deal With The Devil Double Oaked Vanilla Bean is finally here!
If you know anything about the previous ADWTD Barleywines, you probably put a bottle in your crate as soon as you opened the app.
Which is smart! This new 2021 vintage is even more small-batch than the last, with a mere 133 cases produced. Apart from a tiny, locals-only taproom release — and the few wax-dipped bottles Anchorage stowed away in the brewery cellar — the entire batch is right here on Tavour!
Gabe Fletcher and his team aged this latest edition of ADWTD for 7 months in top-shelf Woodford Reserve Double Oaked barrels, then transferred it to Elijah Craig bourbon barrels for an additional 6 months. Finally, they finished it on Madagascar vanilla beans.
The result is a sinfully smooth and silky elixir that tastes of caramel-drizzled crème brûlée with complex layers of oaky, bourbon toffee. A steady stream of vanilla sweetness keeps things glib and comforting, all while that blush-inducing 17% ABV slowly creeps in.
We won’t tell you how to enjoy this rare treat, and we won’t tell you when to enjoy it, either. All we’ll say is — if you’re lucky enough to score a bottle, you’re in for something truly special.
With Tavour, it's easy to beer it forward! Just head over to Tavour.com/gifts to send a gift box or gift card to the craft beer lover in your life. Cheers!
