A Note on This Beer
Everyone’s got a cool uncle, but he’s probably not as hot (as in ABV) as the caramel, vanilla, and oaky notes of today’s 10.8% ABV sipper: Everybody’s Brewing’s Uncle Stepdad’s Barrel Aged Imperial Stout.
Key word here is “sipper”: there’s nothing getting in the way of pure American whiskey glory once the sizzle hits your tongue -- the sting is only matched by a blazing 4.11 on Untappd.
Aged 10 months in bourbon barrels, the only remnants of Stout-like character is hints of cocoa and the impenetrable dark color. From there, it’s all bourbon -- all the time. Just taking a whiff of this brew will likely get you sloshed on the sweet roastiness. The flavor is like a mellow-aged Wild Turkey, completely with the smoothness and woody vanilla spice. As a result, you’re more than likely gonna wanna line up some shots -- but we highly suggest sipping slowly from a tulip glass.
From their little nook of White Salmon in Southern Washington, Everybody’s Brewing is pumping out delicious brews that make their Oregon rivals across Hood River a little envious. We’re astonished we managed to pry a stash from the clutches of their thirsty, whiskey obsessed fans.
