A Note on This Beer
“Nothing to drink here, keep it moving folks!”
That’s what you’ll hear if you ask any Dark Beer-lovin’ local down in Torrance, California about the Barrel-Aging specialists at Smog City.
Ever since the GABF and World Beer Cup medalists opened up in 2013, locals have been trying their damnedest to keep Smog City and their pantry of 4+ UT rated beers a well-kept secret. They know just how hard it is to get your paws on any of the brewery’s super small-batch, Barrel-Aged treats.
Well, looks like the cat’s outta the bag! ‘Cause we got ahold of a small stash of the dangerously smooth, 8.7% ABV Is Ticking Clocks Bourbon Barrel-Aged Porter!
Take a sip of this 4.25 UT rated brew and you’ll understand exactly why SoCal craft fans want to keep these Barrel-Aging masters under wraps!
To make it, Smog City started with their Gold Medal-winning Porter and aged it for 12 months in Buffalo Trace and Heaven Hill barrels with coffee and 25 lbs of toasted coconut. The result is a boozy, black-as-night brew that brims with rich roasty flavors and bourbon-soaked macaroons.
We’ve passed this decadent secret on to you, but I’ll bet that after just one sip, you’ll want to keep an extra bottle hidden away under lock-and-key!
And when your Barrel-Aged buddies come sniffing around your crate wondering what delicious beers you’ve got this time, just tell ‘em “Nothing to drink here, keep it moving folks!”
