A Note on This Beer
Pull out today’s So Happens It’s Tuesday Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout at your next get together and relish in the reactions!
- Some may tremble in the jet-black shadow of this 15% ABV pour.
- Others may gawk in disbelief at your access to this rare, limited-release from the California powerhouse, The Bruery.
- Yet, every Dark Beer fan will applaud the deep notes of whiskey-drizzled chocolate-covered fruit and, ultimately, applaud you for sharing it.
Released only once a year, The Bruery’s exclusive Preservation Society typically holds exclusive first access to today’s 4.20 UT-rated brew — but not this year!
We’re guessing some of their members are baffled in their plush leather chairs trying to figure out how a few cases of this vintage made it to Tavour! Let’s just call it our little secret.
With its robust symphony of black currants, rich oak, and smoky tobacco, we totally understand how folks might feel a little greedy and not want to share this luscious brew.
But if you do choose to spread some liquid-joy, your buds will be more in debt to you than an investor on actual Black Tuesday! Crack it open and shades of cocoa truffles and Tahitian vanilla beans waft in the air. Each sip soaks the palate in oak spice while wine-like fig and cherry accompany a velvety mouthfeel. A warming hint of boozy bourbon heat overtakes the flavor, like a dash of pepper-spice, leaving a charred sensation behind that can only be quenched with another taste.
We recommend enjoying this elegantly crafted pour with your classiest friends. Heck, maybe even use this as the initiation beer to your own exclusive beer society! Whatever the occasion you deem worthy, the reactions will be priceless.
