Allagash Bourbon Barrel Black
Allagash Bourbon Barrel Black is a Belgian Strong Dark Ale. I was excited to find out this at The Beer Growler here in Savannah, so I immediately grabbed a 32 oz growler and headed downtown. Glad I did too since the trade I had set up for a bottle fell through. I’m a fan of Allagash Black, but it turns out if you put it in bourbon barrels for a year I become a BIG fan. It isn’t too different from the original to start, except for a nice dose of bourbon. As it warms up however some wonderful flavors of chocolate, vanilla, toffee, dark fruits and a little bit of coconut come out to play. Delicious!
Haven’t had a chance to try this yet? Good news! Rumor has it that a keg of this will be available at our Allagash Tap Takeover at Your Pie (Sandfly location) on Thursday November 21st. Beer is always subject to change for these events, so check back for the confirmed beer list!
