Cognac and Bourbon Barrel Aged Giant Made of Shadows
Silver City Brewery
A Note on This Beer
Cognac: A vanilla-soaked, dark jammy fruity liquor savored by royalty. Bourbon: A vanilla and caramel-soaked booze packed with spice Today’s 11.8% ABV plum, date, and raisin evoking Belgian Ale is doused in flavors from both liquor barrels!
Silver City’s Cognac and Bourbon Barrel Aged Giant Made of Shadows tastes like a greatest hits barrel showcase if Pappy van Winkle and Hennessy were layered upon a decadently dark fruity Belgian Ale base.
The original Giant Made of Shadows is one of the Top 100 of its kind on BA, but you’ll forget all about that once you get a taste of this limited edition barrel version. Aromatic dances of rum raisin, dark cocoa, and smooth Madagascar vanilla bean entice you to sip. Once you do, you’re on a night rain to Monte Carlo, sipping down plum cakes drizzled in fleur de sel caramel sauce.
The combination of Cognac and Bourbon is so elegantly intertwined, one UT fan said: “The cognac and bourbon hits your tongue right up front then fades away nicely.” Another was more blunt: “Probably not the best thing to drink before the gym…” One thing's for sure, however you drink it, drink it slowly and as refined as possible -- in a Belgian chalice with your pinky in the air.
