A Note on This Beer
Drake’s Brewing has been a staple of California craft beer longer than some of their fans have been alive – 30 years of excellence!
To truly understand why they’re such a favorite, you need to try what is easily one of their most coveted annual releases. I’m talking about one big, boozy Russian Imperial Stout, a barrel-aged behemoth to dazzle the palates of even ultra-experienced dark beer aficionados.
Meet Upward and Onward!
The booze lords at Drake’s age this beast for 10 months in Buffalo Trace Bourbon Barrels for extra-rich character. Its massive 13% ABV depths arrive super chocolatey upfront, giving way to strong bourbon, cardamom spice, and whispers of vanilla and cinnamon. Touches of hazelnut, caramel, and oak murmur from the massive brew’s lingering taste.
This is exactly the kind of heavy-hitter Californians go out of their way for from Drake's. And, from what early tasters are saying, this year’s vintage is definitely worth going out of your way to try.
As craft fan @F.B. gushes:
“Out of this world. Definitely a kickback and chill [kind of beer], what a delicacy. Dark, thick, explosive bourbon flavor. Leave me alone for a while.”
