BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Upslope Brewing Company - Lee Hill
Colorado, United States

Style: American Strong Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 17.50%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
To celebrate our 1000 batch of beer brewed in our main production facility, we concocted a ludicrously sticky wort and dosed ten different types of sugar into the fermenting beer. Twelve months of mellowing in fresh bourbon barrels bestowed notes of warm caramel, crème brûlée, stone fruit, and baking spices. This rich and viscous beer turned cordial is intended to be savored and shared in good company.

8 IBU

$11.50 a 12 ounce can? I trust Upslope. Canned March 11th, 8 IBUs.

It pours a really dark brown with a minimal and short lived head of foam. Not surprising. No lacing.

The smell is huge with the Bourbon, has dark pitted fruits, vanilla, huge caramel malt sweetness, boozy! Hell, it's 17.5%abv!

Lots of Bourbon up front. Caramel malt sweetness is in your face...chocolate attributes to the sweetness. Dark pitted fruits, vanilla, very very sweet overall and a syrupy mouthfeel to it.

Lightly carbonated, the syrupy mouthfeel is a bit much.

A fantastic Old Ale that must have cost Upslope a bit of bucks to cellar before releasing. Worth the expense? In my book, yes.

Deep reds and browns in the body; mahogany; virtually no head (not unusual with high ABV beers). Rich and heavy aroma exuding roasted and charred grains; brown sugar and molasses; dried figs and dates; a bit of tobacco and warm leather; oak and bourbon. Incredible flavors throughout the taste; sweet and spicy with a well-rounded bourbon taste; anise and spearmint. Heavy and oily body; very slick and viscous; heavy residual sugar presence balanced with some warming boozy heat.

This is the way to do an anniversary beer in a big way. This certainly won't appeal to folks who don't go for big, heavy and dark beers with massive alcohol presence, but that is their loss. Very much like a cordial or brandy and a true sipper. Warming and soothing...
