In September, 2020, a great barrel broker friend of ours offered us the chance to buy twenty 10-year-old Van Winkle barrels. Luckily, we had my favorite recipe already fermenting away - O.W.K. This batch hit all its numbers and was then racked to our first Van Winkle barrels – this beer represents a blend of the first BBT from single-source distillery barrels.

These barrels found their way into Beer:Barrel:Time 2022, OWK 2023 and 8 Candles. The heart of the blend was chosen last fall for this 10-year anniversary beer – Van Winkle BBT 2023.

This O.W.K. stout recipe aged exclusively in Van Winkle 10-year bourbon barrels for 25 months.

I've had the chance to try this 3x now. Just a superior offering. Barrel is very present on this. Balanced mix of smoke, vanilla & chocolate with slight tobacco. World class stout.

This bad boy is all barrel. Huge woody notes on the nose; undertones of smoke, vanilla & chocolate. Palate brings the same; dry, oakey, and full of barrel character. With time, the hints of bitterness imparted by the barrel are softened nicely by caramel.
