Guinness Stock Ale Aged in Bulleit Bourbon Barrels
Today I'm checking out Guinness Stock Ale Aged in Bulleit Bourbon Barrels. This beer is a blend of an imperial stout and a barleywine both aged in Bulleit barrels. Bottled in 11.2 oz packaging, so I felt a little short, especially considering they were packaged in Baltimore. 10% alcohol.
Terrific aroma full of vanilla, chocolate, raisins and even hints of blackberries. Excellent flavors! Big body! Silky and creamy texture! Rich chocolate with raisins come first. Sweet but with some alcy balance.
Light roast with a touch of vanilla. A little heat in the chest with the finish. Can definitely taste the bourbon character. Very flavorful beer! Check it out.
