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.

This is in the running for the best beer Ive ever had. Smooth, rich, dark, amazing. You get subtle coffee notes intertwined with bourbon barrel richness and complexity, finished with the woody, sweetness of the port barrel. This beer is a whale and a half.
