BEER INFO

Brewed by:
AleSmith Brewing Company
California, United States
alesmith.com

Style: American Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 13.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
This variation of Speedway Stout has gone through two different maturations in two types of oak barrels to develop its complex flavor profile. The extended aging period in freshly used bourbon barrels helped the beer develop rich notes of vanilla, caramel, and oak. The beer's aging process in Portuguese port barrels added notes of raisin and plum, as well as wine-like tannins. The beer was also combined with locally roasted coffee to further balance its profile of chocolate and roasted malts.

Draft at AleSmith Anvil & Stave.

Black opaque appearance with foam present around the edge of glass. Appears to be of lower viscosity/thin. Loads of barrel presence on the nose. Flavor is nutty and oaky. Some raisin, with mild vanilla and chocolate. But booziness here is unmistakable! Medium mouthfeel.

Black, medium brown lacing.

Coffee, dark chocolate, bourbon, port wine.

Taste: coffee and bourbon dominate. Vanilla, dark chocolate undertones.

Mouthfeel: full-bodied, just a touch over-carbonated for my taste.
