A Note on This Beer
Barrel fans, prepare to treat yourself with an Imperial Stout aged in 12-year Elijah Craig barrels! While most bourbons are “young” whiskeys aged only a year or less, Elijah Craig 12-year takes its time to develop smoother, deeper bourbon flavors most drinkers almost never taste.
Baerlic Brewery’s Woodworker Black Grove Imperial Stout soaks up Elijah Craig’s sweet vanilla and smooth cherry depths -- in short, this 9.1% ABV Stout is nothing less than a whiskey-soaked chocolate bomb.
Cedar depths take over throughout, spicer wood notes, encouraging hints of leather and smoke. Meshing with the Stout’s roasts, toasted oak notes elevate the coffee and chocolate richness with tones of blackstrap molasses and burnt sugar.
Rated Oregon’s Best Small Brewery of 2017, Baerlic has become a go-to source for Portland’s picky barrel fans. With their small-batch focus, they extract HUGE amounts of top-shelf whiskey flavor into their limited edition Woodworker series. Now they’re taking this to the next level in Black Grove, a delicious playground for the aged beauty that is Elijah Craig Bourbon.
