Notes / Commercial Description:
Blend of imperial stouts brewed with walnuts, and aged in bourbon barrels. This special blend consists of Dark Apparition, Oil Of Aphrodite, and Appervation barrels, set aside to age longer than our standard 10-14 months. These barrels range in age from 18-24 months, and the extra time created one of the most pleasant and decadent blends we have ever assembled.

It’s beer that makes Austin, MN bearable – no offense to those who choose to live around here. I’m sure it’s lovely in the December when a 27 MPH wind is blowing. Thanks to Bpfahl for this 375ML bottle.

The pour is dark black, with about as much visible carbonation as the glass it came in. Smells like bourbon soaked chocolate. You listening, Nestle’? I’d buy bars of that.

Vision is Lost Without Eyes to See it Through is like being stuffed into a bourbon barrel. Wow. After the first sip bourbon suffuses my mouth, throat, stomach, fingernails, & anyplace else it can reach. Bourbon, strong chocolate, & nuts, nuts, nuts. The mouthfeel is reminiscent of good molasses, thick, succulent, like lying in a pool of plus sized supermodels. ABV is not noticeable. I could drink this until I woke up hung over in the middle of main street. Luckily, there are so few people here, I wouldn’t get run over.

Very good bourbon barrel beers are becoming pretty common. Excellent ones are harder to find, harder to describe, & harder to pigeonhole. This reaches the upper echelon because with every sip, the bourbon & malts & nuts pour directly into my soul. This is one amazing beer.
