The Hammer - Barrel Aged | Phillips Brewing Company
Phillips Brewing Company
British Columbia, Canada
Style: Russian Imperial Stout
Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.30%
Notes / Commercial Description:
Smooth with oak and smoke notes, this special version of the Hammer is aged in Bourbon barrels, yielding a more mellow version of the Imperial Stout.
This year’s vintage was carefully aged in freshly emptied bourbon barrels. It pours a deep earthy brown colour and features a full-bodied, roasted flavour profile with hints of dark chocolate, vanilla and coconut. This beer pairs beautifully with dark winter nights, or if you have the patience, is a great candidate to make disappear for awhile in your beer cellar gulag.
