A Note on This Beer
When I heard Junkyard sent us a new batch of their Willett Barrel Aged King Size Imperial Peanut Stout (2020), my mouth started watering on behalf of dessert lovers everywhere.
The last time we managed to snag a few bottles, every last decadent drop disappeared into the Stout-esphere in less than 24 hours!
This time around, we have 50 cases to share. The luxurious, bourbon barrel-aged, dry-roasted peanut powerhouse comes in a whopping 750 ml bottle with a dangerously discreet 11.7% ABV to boot!
To craft Barrel Aged King Size this time around, the dexterous brewers aged the entire batch in its freshest round of Willett bourbon barrels to-date.
The dreamy, dark-as-motor-oil result bursts with flavors of sweet leaf tobacco, top-shelf bourbon, and dried figs.
On top of its barrel character, succulent waves of bakers chocolate and flakey Butterfinger candy bar flavors flirt with notes of vanilla bean. It tastes like a chocolate peanut butter torte with an oaky, boozy twist, topped with a pillowy-plop of homemade whipped cream.
One thing’s for sure — this is the kind of treat Dark Beer lovers fiend for. Which means, it’s meant to be savored on a special occasion, with those who will appreciate it most!
*This 2020 vintage is too new for ratings but last year’s edition earned a whopping 4.42 on Untappd!
