Year of New Beer: 2014 Whiskey Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, Boulevard Brewing (Kansas City)

Written By: Dion on 03/16/2017

Hints of raisins, plums, and dates sit atop a sweet chocolate and light vanilla, all of which are awash in a none-too-subtle whiskey aroma. On the tongue, a booze-laced coffee and chocolate are intertwined with a caramel and brown sugar-infused smoky oak. A solid earthy bitterness is remarkable in this 3 year old bottle, tempered only by a persistent malty sweetness through the finish. Cheers to the crew at Boulevard for consistently producing some of the most accessible, affordable, and delicious beers on the market.
