• Double BA with figs, dates, Amburana wood spirals
Can’t remember if I’ve ever had a double barrel aged beer before (this has been in both whiskey and brandy barrels!).
The figs and dates come through really strongly in the aroma and the taste. It’s quite sweet, caramelly, brown sugar, more dried fruits and kinda fudgey in a way. Notes of brandy and whiskey in the finish, well, more so the brandy I think, the booze is nice. Full bodied and pretty thick. Superb stout from these two old school heavyweights of the US craft beer scene, really rich and flavourful, malt forward. This is definitely one to look out for.
