Anthem Bourbon Barrel Uroboros
Anthem Bourbon Barrel Uroboros is a Belgian style Stout, 8.5% ABV. Obviously this has been aged in bourbon barrels. Lee got this bottle in a trade from Oklahoma beer blogger Beer Is OK. Thanks for the bottle Brian!
This pours a fairly typical dark brown color with some caramel tones, nice coffee colored head. I’m getting a huge amount of bourbon and booze on the nose along with some more subtle notes of caramel. The taste brings in some nice dark fruit notes of prunes and white raisins, chocolate malt, a medium bourbon taste, a little fruity Belgian yeast. A touch thin in the mouth-feel but I think that is fairly typical for most of my Belgian style Stout experiences. Overall this is a touch boozy even though the bourbon flavor is not super potent. A bit of a surprise at 8.5% ABV.
This is an excellent stout, I am grateful to have had the chance to tick this one off the list! Thanks to both Lee and Brian for the opportunity!
