BEER INFO

Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

Style: American Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 14.90%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
We took our original J. Wakefield collaboration Affogato Imperial Stout and aged it in bourbon barrels for 6 months at our Hudson Road barrel house. Affogato Imperial Stout is inspired by a few of our brewers' favorite summertime pick-me-up (& cool-me-down) Barrington's affogato.

Barrel Aged Affogato Imperial Stout is decadent, rich and full. Brewed with a blend of Barrington & Mostra beans, Affogato leads with aromas of vanilla, toasted marshmallows and subtle notes of bourbon. Barrel Aged Affogato has a full, satisfying body and an indulgent palate of vanilla cream, hot cocoa, rich brownie batter, with complimentary doses of smooth coffee and bourbon.

MALT: American 2-Row Barley, Crystal 120, Flaked Oats, Black Malt, Chocolate Malt, Munich Malt, White Wheat Malt, Brown Sugar, Dark Candied Syrup, Lactose
HOPS, ETC: Columbus, Barrington and Mostra Coffees, Madagascar Vanilla Beans

Thanks big time Kevin!

A- Motor oil elixir from the 750ml to a becher. A one finger light tan head has a foamy consistency and good retention. Small webs of lace.

S- Massive and sweet BA stout nose, you can just tell this is gonna be a big rich beast. A huge amount of barrel, coffee and roast grains. Espresso beans, dark chocolate, burnt barley, milk chocolate, heavily toasted nuts, toffee, peppery spicy whiskey, big vanilla, caramel and alcohol.

T- The booze and sweetness pickup and for the most part the big things get more prominent simplifying the experience somewhat. Spicy whiskey and medium toast oak with plenty of booze leading into the big sweets and dessert flavors. Vanilla is massive with caramel, toffee, roast barley, dark chocolate, cocoa powder, hersheys chocolate, deep roast espresso beans, fudge and some dark dried dark fruits like fig but those are mostly an afterthought.

MF- Heavy as it gets with a slightly frothy consistency and that syrupy oily sugar heft. Warm from the booze with medium carbonation.

A great mixture of a boozy whiskey barrel, dark chocolate grains and espresso.
