Notes: Collaboration with Side Project Brewing

A conscious and meaningful brewing effort between friends and lovers of barrel aged beers; formulated as a blend of our signature barrel aged stouts, we both selected techniques and ingredients that pushed both our skill sets. The resulting beer rested for 14 months in fresh bourbon barrels. Inky, warm., dark, and extravagant, swallowing you into a deep abyss of liquid love.

Straight chilling. Nothing crazy like Chief breaking out of the booby hatch, but I can straight just chill on this thing like on a hammock on sunny day. And that’s it, this beer is Raul on a hammock; not on a beach or in the top of Mount Everest, just a hammock.

Be well, my children.

Sampling a cellar temp 500 ml bottle poured into my snifter. 2020 vintage.
The bottle is part of a swap with @Artizen, thank you!
The beer pours a pitch black color with minimal dense tan head that foams up only a little bit even after a very aggressive pour. This minimal foam fades away to the thinnest of edge layers quickly after the pour.
Aroma is dark malt, lots of bourbon, some dark chocolate and a bit of toffee. Fairly sweet and robust, but not really boozy at all and no hop profile shows up.
First sip reveals a silky smooth texture and medium to thick body. The carbonation is gentle, spacious and rolls softly across my palate.
Flavor is what I expect for style and what the nose advertises. I get some roasted malt and toffee with a bit of dark chocolate and a good boost of bourbon note. I also get molasses here and some dark fruit too. Again, no hop character, and the booze is very dangerously well hidden.
I am really enjoying this beer and find it a pleasure to drink, highly recommend this to the BBA stout crowd.

Just a wonderful collab. The 2020 is great without any further aging.

2020 vintage. Beer pours black with brown foam. Smells like chocolate, coffee and bourbon. The taste stays around quite long, quite some roast and coffee present. The body is just a little thin, but overall a very nice beer.

This had a good bit of barrel sweetness. Bit of coffee, but more roast. It did also have this honey-type of sweetness at the end I don’t usually taste in the style. Not bad, but unexpected. Medium feel.
