This barrel aged stout comes from the famous Sierra Nevada Brewing Company. I like their products, especially Torpedo Extra IPA is one of my favorites.
I was excited to hear that they’ve made a stout aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels. And in my opinion, they’ve succeeded very well with this expression.
Bourbon sweetness is there but it gives enough room for the stout’s natural ingredients.
Even though not a full ten point beer, I had to review it because of the major whisky influence.9 Nicely in balance, good job with American white oak Ex-Bourbon maturing Brewery: Sierra Nevada Brewing Company
