This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

SBC's Bourbon Barrel Stout celebrates our 16th Anniversary and is a blend of three variations of an Imperial Stout. One thread was aged in stainless steel. A second thread was aged in Bourbon Barrels from Missouri Spirits House. The third thread was aged on a blend of blackberries, raspberries, and tart cherries. These three threads harmonize to create Bourbon Barrel Stout.

3.5/5  rDev -6.4%

Pours a deep brown far from the black i had actually expected. Nose is a deep dark fruit with a mild hint of bourbon. Overall the flavor is overwhlemed by the fruit and comes across a little watery in the mouthfeel. Its a good beer but i have actually come to expect a little more from SBC.

Bottle pour at the pre-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.

Thanks to mthomas84 for sharing this one.

2014 vintage.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and berry aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, berry, and slight bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is a nice blend of stout and berry aspects, but the barrel aging on this one is quite subdued in my opinion.
