A Note on This Beer
The last time the GABF award-winning brewers at Oregon’s ColdFire awakened today’s slumbering brew, only 100 cases escaped from the cellar! Even the most diehard local fans were limited to only one bottle per person!
So when Coldfire hosted their annual members-only party for today’s 12.5% ABV The Bourbon Council Barrel-Aged Stout 2019 Vintage, we imagine a few kooky-characters came disguised in costumes in hopes of sneaking off with extra brews.
There was probably a man with a handle-bar mustache hiding a bottle under his fancy top hat. And an exotic Duchess sneaking a few brews under her massively puffy dress. Maybe even an eye-patch wearing pirate smuggling the boozy booty tucked inside his high-top leather boots!
We can think of more than a dozen costumes we’d confidently wear to crash the exclusive party so we could make off with this barrel-aged vintage. Yet for our lucky members, no costume is required!
Our super close tie with the Coldfire crew gives you the keys to their coveted cellar. While other craft fans resort to tomfoolery in hopes of tasting today’s beer, you have the chance to sit back and enjoy your VIP pass to this barrel-aged flavor party.
Aged for up to two years in a mixture of top-shelf barrels from Woodford and Heaven Hill, each pitch-black sip dives into a deep vortex of flavor complexity. Notes of sweet toffee and rich cocoa dance amongst the hints of bourbon heat. Flavors of sugar-crusted praline and salted caramel are softened ever so lightly by oak barrel notes.
The Bourbon Council 2019 has everything Dark Beer fans drool over: intricate ingredients, patient aging, and top-shelf bourbon barrels. So be careful who you tell about your private stash of this year’s vintage — otherwise, you may have some mischievous-looking characters scheming around your beer fridge!
