Alewerks Brewing Cafe Royale made for a fine way to ring in New Year's 2014 for me.
When fresh, I described both this one and Mean Gene as Woodford Reserve milkshakes made with chocolate ice cream (not necessarily bad). You should post a review of this in the cellar reviews thread after the right moment strikes you. I'm very interested to hear how this beer mellows/develops.
Almost all hole in the wall stores have some, it didn't exactly fly off the shelf at that price.
Just check beermenus.com
I'm pretty certain foremost liquors on Peterson and lincoln had some last week.
Where does one buy a Bourbon Barrel ? Think I may purchase one and rent it to my home brewing friends
You should be!It was phenomenal.I also agree with 18th Street's Hunter(Coffee)
I think I need that glass too @StlHopHead77
Yeah,it was a beauty.I actually just sent it to a trade partner along with a bottle of Sump.I'll keep you in mind if I see them back around.
Life is like and CCB sweet stout aged in cognac barrels are two if the best ones I've tried in recent memory.
Not Bourbon but they have used Whisky barrels.
FFF BA Moloko is definitely a favorite of mine. Always the one beer I seek out at DLD.
This was my thought as well!
To Øl -
13.1% barrel aged imperial milk stout - its delicious
Its classified as a double/imperial
I don't think his rebuke was very strong.
It's uncommon, but if you ever locate a beer called 70K from Against the Grain, you'd love it. It's a massive milk stout (13%abv) aged in Angel's Envy barrels. Unbelievably tasty and dangerously drinkable.
Such a great beer.
+1 for Cafe Royale. Can't wait till it gets bottled again.
Definitely would love to try that. Moloko is one of my favorite stouts, can't imagine it in a BB.
That sounds like an interesting brew. What makes something a milk stout anyway? Is it simply the addition of lactose to any stout?
If you want a great milk stout, check out Cozy Up from Woodland Empire. Only released in Boise ID and I can definitely get some to trade.
You would need roughly 53 gallons of beer to fill a bourbon barrel and I don't personally know any homebrewers that brew on that kind of scale. Although they're kind of a rip off, I've thought about buying one of these to use for homebrewing after the whiskey is done http://www.amazon.com/2-Liter-Ameri...id=1400002161&sr=8-2&keywords=bourbon+barrel;
Hardywood GBS is a gingerbread milk stout I believe...and incredible.
Traded for one a while back and it was severely infected. It was a very sad day...
Against the Grain 70k!
I don't think it's barrel aged, but if you want a good milk stout you should try To Øl's Jule Maelk.
BA Fantastic Voyage is phenomenal. Can't get enough.
River Horse (a small-ish brewery near me) just announced that they'll be releasing a bourbon (Maker's, if you care) barrel-aged version of their oatmeal milk stout sometime in June or July, although it probably won't make it into distribution except maybe in their mixed 12-packs.
I second the nomination for New Holland Dragon's Milk!
Sorry to hear that, glad it wasn't me sent it to you.
We opened the last of mine, from batch 1, last Fathers Day, glad to say it was amazing, even better than "fresh". Held my breath while I did, though, because I had heard of some issues with other bottles in later bottlings. Wheewwwww.
BA Jones Dog for sure. Batch 75 was done in Buffalo Trace barrels and is really good. Batch 209 was done is 27-30 yr Heaven Hill barrles and is Phenomenal!!!
Just look at the "best of the style" & most all the top 10 on that list see a barrel of one sort or another. Let's face it, this is BA, and barrel aged anything usually hits the top of the list, regardless of the intricacies of the style.
Thanks, I did look at that list, but I have got some beer ideas that were not at the top of the style, the non-ba style ranking. Thanks for looking out though
I think Mikkeller vanilla shake uses a hefty dose of lactose which kinda sorta makes it a milk stout by default. It's incredible.
Surprisingly, Double Cream Stout doesn't have lactose sugar in it.
Moat Water and Cognac Imperial Sweet Stout are tops from CCB. 10000 times better than the garbage juice that was Life is Like. Bourbon Barrel Mayan Mocha was excellent...not sure if it is a sweet stout or not. And I hear good things about BA Vanilla Shake.
Outside of CCB Sweet Stouts I have found most just don't hold up to the barrels. Cafe Royale and Bourbon MooHoo were just sharp booze burn taste, for example.
LOL, inkdemention needs to read this.
I've got a couple bottles of BA Fantastic Voyage left
I can twerk for beer?....
send me a message.
