Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

La Petite Mort is a Belgian inspired Weissenbock brewed as a one off collaboration between The Local Option and Central Waters Brewery in Amherst, Wisconsin. When Central Waters decided to open its brew house for its first collaboration beer, Chicago’s Local Option was the obvious partner in crime. The resulting brainchild, La Petite Mort - a Belgian inspired Weissenbock – maintains the traditional characteristics of its Bavarian forbearer, with the added complexity of Belgian ale yeast. La Petite Mort is dark amber in color; maintains a rich, full-bodied mouth-feel augmented by caramel; mild and dark fruit.

Pours a dense, tan head. Sweet malt aroma bursting with vanilla and oak. It smells like candy! Deep burnt umber color. Starts with sweet malt, booze, a flash of floral hop bitterness, and then the bourbon flavors move in and dominate. The vanilla stretches across the sweet malt with notes of oak developing into the finish. The finish is vanilla and oak, a touch of hops in the background, and sweet malt.

This is pretty good. It's just bursting with bourbon notes. When Central Waters puts it in a bourbon barrel, you know it's going to be amazing.
