Notes: Collaboration with J. Wakefield Brewing

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.

2021 version poured into a KBBS tulip glass. There was less coffee and more sweetness in this than I had hoped or anticipated. Not particularly thick.

Thin and overrated. Most of Trillium's barrel-aged stouts taste the same. This one uses the same base stout as all of the others and tries to cover up the flaws with lots of sugar.

Big time want. Poured on draft at Trillium's Fenway location. Consumed and noted November 1st, 2021.

Pours black with a finger of caramel khaki colored foam. Aroma is dense chocolate and coffee, leaning on both in a near even split. Caramel adds a touch of sweetness. Roasty and toasty malts add a firm foundation, and while tipping the beer into the 'heavy and dark' category, lands shy of being light-absorbing dark. Barrel, bourbon, and some light booze comes on at the end, but the nose still leans more firmly towards 'sweet'. Coffee is full, providing a whiff of wonderful medium-bodied roast. Flavor profile is BIG chocolate, followed quickly by coffee. It's akin to taking a bite out of a Hershey's chocolate bar, followed by a sip of Colombian origin coffee done through a Chemex. Roasty and toasty malts are layered underneath, establishing a dark and firm base, without impeding on the leading notes. Barrel, char, and bourbon add some light heat at the end without tipping the scale towards boozy. Whole flavor profile leans slightly towards 'sweet', but not enough so that it's a dessert beer. Mouth feel is a gorgeous thick, full, dense, and creamy texture. Overall, coffee is sublime here, and are accented well via milk chocolate and bourbon. While packing quite an array of notes, and a high alcohol content, this beer goes down slippery smooth.

Draft. Reviewed from notes.
