JACKIE O’S DARK APPARITION STOUT AGED IN OAK BOURBON BARRELS

“Hauntingly good” oak-aged stout with abounding complexities. Aggressive bourbon sweetness gains immediate brown-sugared molasses sapping and caramelized chocolate-coffee conflux contrasted by sedate wood-seared hop char. Below the bustling mocha-bourbon mudcake surface, dried-fruited date, fig and plum illusions as well as distant hazelnut-coconut snips hide out. A decadent first-class slow sipper.
