A Note on This Beer
Creamy, roasty, sweet and satisfying, Milk Stouts show us the lighter, smoother side of Dark Beers. But for the times you wanna go bigger and bolder, Hangar 24’s inspired use of Bourbon and Brandy barrels in their Barrel Roll Laval 2018 Double Cream Stout = double the flavor and double the ABV!
By aging their Milk Stout for 9 months in Heaven Hill Bourbon and American Brandy barrels, Hangar 24 boosts the ABV to 11.5% and catapults the flavor profile to another dimension. Bourbon imparts silky vanilla and smooth toffee notes, while Brandy adds sweet cherry punctuation and hints of raspberry-studded dark chocolate. You’ll experience the delicately creamy mouthfeel you love about Milk Stouts (from Lactose Sugar and Roasted English Malts), plus you’ll gain added flavor impact from the barrel heavy treatment in an intricately liquor-laced body.
First released exclusively at their California taproom, the good word spread about Barrel Roll Laval, and before you know it the brewery created a whole festival called Lavalapalooza to give fans another mind-altering dose. This latest 2018 batch is earning a 4.39 on BeerAdvocate for its multidimensional flavor profile and robust kick. Grab it before it disappears into its boozy caverns again!
