A Note on This Beer
If you polled Colorado dark beer and barrel fans, they’d give you a zillion different reasons why Copper Kettle’s Barrel Aged Snowed In Imperial Stout is at the top of their must have list. But we’re just going to give you the top three:
– It’s a 13.3% ABV extravaganza
– It spent 4 months aging in locally distilled Breckenridge Bourbon barrels
– Only 320 cases exist
Oh and this highly rated, highly sought after Oatmeal Stout is also teeming with generous additions of coffee and chocolate – every sniff of boozy espresso cake precedes every sip of in-your-face spiked java.
The sweet sting of Bourbon hits you as soon as you break the wax seal. Posture up because it’s going to be an intense ride of complex dark flavors: woody cinnamon, hints of stone fruit lacings, vanilla and chocolate, chocolate, chocolate.
This time of year, every brewery comes out with an offering of something bourbon and dark but Snowed In comes from Copper Kettle with all their GABF expertise in big ABV, malty goodness. It’s bold and very warming -- this is not a beer you can drink while standing, you’re going to have to sit yourself down.
