A Note on This Beer
Rare Dark Beer junkies, are you ready for this? Today’s beer is:
- An extremely limited, bold 14% ABV, Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stout.
- Borderline impossible to find outside of Indiana.
- Beloved by the Untappd community with a killer 4.22 rating.
This may not be the beer you’d expect — today’s small-batch beast comes with a stone fruity Belgian-style twist! You might want to take a class on yoga breathing to prepare for the boozy flavor intensity of Taxman’s Evasion BBAB Stout (2020).
That’s not a typo, BBAB stands for Bourbon Barrel-Aged Belgian, and this Stout is all of those things, to the max. Dark Belgian Candi Sugar elevates the royally high booziness, keeping it silky and smoothing out the roasts with mellow toffee notes.
Taxman ages the dark chocolate-covered plum and Moroccan date-like base in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels, adding complex notes of new leather, fire-cured tobacco, and sweet, spiced oak. These robust flavors drawn from the barrels parlay with real Indonesian vanilla beans in a refined, bittersweet finish.
Belgian-Style Barrel Aged Stouts are hard to find, making Evasion a special treat. And, on top of that, Taxman has earned two GABF medals for the style. A treasure indeed!
