Notes / Commercial Description:
Barrel Aged Stout: Zaftig Bourbon Stout is our signature barrel aged beer. We make a stout with lots of chocolate and roasted notes, and then let it rest in some of the best American Bourbon barrels, "Four Roses". We then add fresh vanilla beans to round out this classic stout. The combination of beer, bourbon, and vanilla will have you wondering when this beauty will come around again.

12 ounce bottle, Batch 117 stamped on the label, 2017 vintage. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head that stuck around a little while. There's a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like bourbon, vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate, oak and earthiness. Taste is similar to the aroma, with bourbon, vanilla, roasted malt, oak, chocolate, earthy, licorice and coffee flavors noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is full, it's slick and a bit creamy with a moderate amount of carbonation. It's also smooth and pretty easy to drink for the 10% ABV. I thought this was a pretty good barrel aged stout, I'm a fan of Zaftig's stouts in general and this is one of their best that I've tried. Definitely worth getting a bottle if you come across some. $8.99 a bottle.
