A Note on This Beer
Today’s barrel-aged Rackhouse Reserve captures the full range of Alesong’s GABF award-winning brewing power AND their masterful mixologist-esque blending.
First, the brewing: The skilled crew crafted a variety of base Ales, which they aged in unique spirit barrels for up to 18 months. Today’s Strong Ale derives from Ales aged in 6 year Woodford Reserve Bourbon, 6 year Four Roses Bourbon, and 4 through 10 year Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels.
Next, the blending: The brewers spent hours mixing their collection of barrel-aged wonders, blending and fine-tuning the proportions. They let their refined palates guide them, pinpointing the most delicious combination possible.
The divine result is today’s rich, 12% ABV dark chocolate flavored sipper, dappled with warm, barrel-aged notes. Toasted marshmallow and creamy caramel swirl into a hint of spiced Whiskey oak.
Every sip is rich and alluring, the kind of artfully-crafted Ale that deserves a snifter and your full attention — the type of special brew you’ll remember long after the last drop’s gone.
Alesong’s won an astounding 8 GABF medals!

boozy, toasty, roasty, bit of goodness. smooth and full filling.
Excellent, if only all barrel aged stout just tasted this good
Awesome blend. I hope we keep seeing this one over and over again.
Rich flavors and smooth texture
So smooth! Hit the spot
A smooth variety of bourbons, tasting notes of raisins, toffee, and a hint of caramel. Sublime!
I like! I could taste a little of chocolate in there!
Caramel and vanilla, chocolate, good malty backbone with balanced barrel and sweetness. Nearing 4.5 here
Chocolate and bourbon
Loved this one. The flavors of chocolate to marshmallow to caramel mix so well in this beer. I'd have this with a rich meaty dinner or as a desert beer
Really nice Belgian with great bourbon taste. Not overly sweet or boozy. Hits all the right notes.
This is a very nice barrel-aged Belgian. It is full of warm flavors like caramel and dark chocolate.
Very good gets better as it warms!
Everything I want out of a barrel aged strong ale. Malty and a good but not overpowering bourbon barrel flavor.
Really damn good. Nothing really special other than how unbelievably solid it is.
Excellent barrel aged ale. Pours a dark caramel color. Sweet caramel on the nose. Dark fruit, dark chocolate, oak, and caramel notes balance well. Not overly sweet or bitter. Very smooth.
Brown sugar, bourbon, nice barrel finish. Love it.
Sweet bourbon, caramel. Not too boozy.
A little thin but overall fine
LOVED this one! definitely a sleeper that I want expecting. definitely a sipper to enjoy and it was a pleasure
Nicely blended seemed like there was a dried fruit flavor with nice rich malt base.
Nose: vanilla, cherry cola. Taste: toffee punches you right in the face, followed by smooth oakey vanilla, chocolate, and cola.
A blend for the shipping gods; another worthy sacrifice
Caramelly and a little roasty. Very easy to drink at 12.5%
really good ale
Quite possibly one of the best beers I’ve ever tasted. Top notch. 10/10 would order again.
