BREWERY DESCRIPTION: 

INKY BLACK WITH AROMA OF DRIED CHERRY, SHAVED CHOCOLATE, AND WHISKEY

In the 1990s, a master distiller visiting from Scotland, and a Brewmaster from a small brewery in Hood River, serendipitously crossed paths. Over a pint or two, they shared their labors of love and pondered a rather intriguing question: what would happen if beer and distilled spirits met somewhere along the way? The outcome of their inspiration was Full Sail’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, an annual celebration of the best of American beer and American bourbon. With a tip of the hat to the Scotsman that inspired the idea, we offer this finely crafted beer for a limited time.

Our Bourbon Aged Imperial Stout is a highly anticipated release from our Brewmaster's cellar. This beer was brewed in November of 2015 and was carefully aged for months in Wild Turkey Bourbon casks from Kentucky. This extended aging presents hints of vanilla and allows the Stout to pick up the flavors of the wood, bourbon and oak. The aging accentuates the robust character of the Imperial Stout and brings out the depth of flavor from the bourbon creating an overall elegantly sophisticated beer.

This year’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout is inky black with aroma of dried cherry, shaved chocolate, and whiskey. It has a full malty palate with flavors of dark chocolate, vanilla, cherry, dried figs and a subtle hint of molasses. It finishes deliciously warm on the palate. (Formerly known as Black Gold) It cellars well! 

Food Pairings: Steak, Braised meats, short ribs, pork shoulder. Anything chocolate, desserts of all kinds, vanilla ice cream, strawberry shortcake, pear crisp, bread pudding, chocolate eclairs, brownies, coconut, cookies, cheesecake. Cheese: Cascadia Creamery's Glacier Blue or Stilton.
