Barrel Aged Beer, Imperial Stout
Bourbon Barrel Aged Leon Russian Imperial Stout
Aged for six months in bourbon barrels, this version of Leon, our Russian Imperial Stout, is brewed with handmade marshmallow fluff, graham crackers, and bittersweet baker’s chocolate and is markedly different than its original. The extended time spent maturing has allowed the bittersweet chocolate and hops to give way to a more robust malt character that pairs well with vanilla and oak characteristics imparted from the bourbon barrels, as well as a little extra kick. While six months may be a long time to wait for a beer, we think it was well worth it and hope you agree.
