A Note on This Beer
I tip my hat to the gentlefolks at Parish Brewing for crafting Barrel-Aged Cordial Cherry, a sumptuous Stout that captures the flavors of a real chocolate cordial cherry.
It’s on a whole other level than those candies you find in a grocery store. I’m talking about the delicate, boozy truffles that were once only crafted in the eastern part of France bordering Switzerland (a.k.a. the perfect spot for all things confectionary).
This velvety Stout puts the beauty of this treat on full display. The brewers fill this rich brew with cherry purée and dutch cocoa for notes of sweet fruit enrobed in robust chocolate. Then, smooth vanilla streams in with a hint of nuttiness from almond additions.
A bourbon-y 11.5% ABV warmth bubbles under the surface, as well. To craft an absolutely luxe and decadent sipper, the brewers aged this Stout for nearly a year in a blend of Cherry Brandy barrels (previously home to bourbon) and Widow Jane double oak barrels.
The fortunate few who’ve been able to try Barrel-Aged Cordial Cherry Stout are singing its praises on Untappd:
- “Wow. Amazing flavors and character. This is an excellent execution of the intention.” @Anthony A.
- “Killed the concept” @Britt A.
- “Thick and rich. Cherry and almonds on point!” @Lincoln W.
To taste a true cherry cordial, you could travel to the east of France. Or, you could pick up a bottle of this Barrel Aged Cordial Cherry.
This Stout is part of a special release to celebrate Parish Brewing’s 10 year anniversary!
