A Note on This Beer
I’ll cut to the chase.
The annually-released bottle of Gingerbread mastery you see before you sits among the Top 10 Milk Stouts in the entire WORLD on BeerAdvocate.
Craft fans across the interwebs call Kentucky Christmas Morning “phenomenal,” and one even goes so far as to say, “it’s the most incredible beer I’ve ever had.”
To craft it, the 4x GABF medal-winning brewers at Hardywood Park started with their fan-adored, ginger, cinnamon, vanilla bean, wildflower honey, and lactose-laced Gingerbread Imperial Stout. Then they took the beer to the next level of opulence by aging it in Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels with locally-roasted Guatemalan and Colombian coffee beans.
With each decadently thick taste, you’ll experience how the barrel-aging masters delicately conjure flavors of woody molasses, dark chocolate, fresh-baked gingerbread, and ground espresso. Breathe in aromas of oaky vanilla, sweet cinnamon, and coconut, as you indulge in another silky-smooth sip.
It's entirely up to you to bring this delicacy home — or to blow away your most high-brow craft buddy at the annual bottle share! Only question is: will you call dibs on your bottles before your fellow Stout sippers do?
