Notes: The barrel stock we tasted through to choose the 2019 BBT blend is the exact same stock that we pull from for the Derivations and all of our stouts. We have brewed 15 different stout recipes, aged them in a variety of barrels, and then always thoughtfully selected and blended to achieve our goals, whether it be Beer : Barrel : Time, a new blend of Derivation or the Barrel-Aged Stouts by Shared Brewing.

BBT 2019 consists of:
O.W.K. recipe aged in Willett Bourbon barrels for 21 months
O.W.K. recipe aged in Eagle Rare barrels for 21 months
Derivation Blend #3 recipe aged in Knob Creek barrels for 22 months
Derivation Blend #3 recipe aged in Knob Creek barrels for 28 months
Derivation Blend #2 recipe aged in Willett Bourbon barrels for 20 months

poured from a 750mL bottle into a snifter. pours pitch black with virtually no head at all. a few bubbles here and there. smells of chocolate and bourbon. a lot of both, in a good way. taste is similar with tons of chocolate and quite a bit of barrel. it’s still relatively easy drinking for a 15% BA imperial stout. mouthfeel is spectacular. barely any carbonation. it’s slick, full and only adds to the experience of this beer. i thought it would be hard to top BBT2 and while this isn’t quite there it’s damn close. a little less chocolate and a bit more barrel.
