BOULEVARD / FIRESTONE WALKER COLLABORATION NO. 6 BARREL AGED BLEND

On tap at Growler & Gill, pleasing array of Boulevard Bourbon Barrel Quad’s sweet cherry bruise and white grape souring, Firestone Walker Stickeee Monkee’s warming caramelized barleywine styling and Boulevard Imperial Stout X’s whiskey-aged cherry tartness. Foremost, bourbon-soaked rum spicing and peaty Scotch licks penetrate rich oats-sugared brown chocolate and vanilla creaming (from Firestone’s Velvet Merkin Oatmeal Stout). Mighty fine.
