Alcohol by volume (ABV): 13.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Originally an Against the Grain Brewery and Brouwerij De Molen collaboration beer. For the first incarnation, De Molen head brewer Menno Oliver hopped in a muscle car and drove straight through from the Netherlands to Louisville, KY (that's USA folks) to brew this bourbon inspired ale, and we liked it so much, we decided to do it again. We took the ingredients in bourbon whiskey (Barley, Rye, Corn) and then smoked them with cherry wood and brewed a huge imperial stout with them. Then to top it off we aged it in Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Barrels. The resulting beer is rich, smokey and complex, with a bourbon character of caramel, vanilla and spice.

A-black with a one finger light brown head that fades slow and leaves a good lace
S-smoke , bourbon, vanilla , and a cherry aroma
T-vanilla flavor that goes to a bourbon and vanilla mix, that quickly goes to a hot and hop bitter aftertaste that brings the smoke out in the finish.
M-low carbonation and full body with a good alcohol warming in the aftertaste
O-the warmer it gets the stronger the hop and alcohol aftertaste become but the smoke flavor seems to mellow out some
