ABOUT THIS BEER
Don’t be fooled by the itty bitty half-pint cans — you’re looking at one of the biggest, boldest, and booziest bourbon barrel-aged Stouts to come out of the Midwest.
At 15.7% ABV, Bourbon Barrel-Aged Q.O.R.I.S. The Quasher Quadruple Oatmeal Imperial Stout (say that ten times fast) is a veritable behemoth. And, it’s brand-new from Ohio’s Dark Beer lords at Hoppin’ Frog!
This crew is renowned for crafting some of the baddest brews the Midwest has ever known. Their grand Oatmeal Russian Imperial Stouts boast a laundry list of World Beer Cup Awards and GABF Gold Medals.
And, Bourbon Barrel-Aged Q.O.R.I.S. takes what those other Stouts have, and amps it up to a 20 out of 10!
With a heavily oat-malted base, it sips luxuriantly smooth, roasty, and thick, with a potent dark chocolate and brown sugar character. A rich dose of american hops in the boil and in the dry-hop cuts through the deep-seeded mocha roastiness with potent shots of orange zest and fresh spruce.
To top it off, the brewers aged the high-gravity goliath in Bourbon Barrels for 9 months, adding silky layers of caramelized dates, vanilla, and burnt toffee to the mouth-watering mix.
For beer nerds like @Martin M. who seek the biggest and the booziest, this whiskey-laden leviathan offers “Everything you could want in a Barrel Aged Stout!”
