Full Sail Brewing Co. released its 2015 Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout. Brewed in December 2013, the beer was carefully aged for a year in Kentucky Bourbon casks from Jim Beam and Four Roses. This extended aging allows the stout to pick up the flavors of the wood, bourbon and oak, the company says. This year’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout is inky black with an aroma of dried cherry, shaved chocolate and whiskey, according to the company. It has a full malty palate with flavors of dark chocolate, vanilla, cherry, dried figs and a subtle hint of molasses, it adds. It is available in 22-ounce bottles and on draft in select markets.
