Visit Official Event Site
We're excited to announce the -STOUT MONTH EDITION- of Gift Of Time!For this unique edition we blended three different Imperial Stout recipes each initially brewed in 2016 and resting gracefully in Bourbon Barrels ever since. The first part, being the oldest, was an Imperial Stout-Porter brewed in April of 2016 with Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergso from Evil Twin and aged for 46 months in a single 12 year old Heaven Hill Bourbon barrel. The second part was an Imperial Stout brewed in May of 2016 and aged in a single Angels Envy barrel for 45 months. The remaining portion of the blend was comprised of an Imperial Rye Stout recipe brewed in June of 2016 and aged for 44 months in 10 year old Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrels. The over-all blend comes out to a 25/25/50 split between the recipes.
With the average age of this blend surpassing 44 months spent in the various bourbon barrels, it suffices to say this is another decadent ensemble of barrel characteristics. Bourbon layered on top of bourbon, each monstrous Imperial Stout recipe does well enriching and balancing the final blend. We are excited to share a little bit more of the barrel-aging projects we’ve been working on over the years and what better way to celebrate Stout Month here in Colorado then with another small release from our Bourbon Barrel Cellar!
Gift of Time -Stout Month Edition- has a rich assortment of aromas, comprised of maple syrup with a hint of vanilla, Belgian dark chocolate, cinnamon and raisins, while finishing with an even balance of dark fruit and bourbon dipped chocolate truffles. The Bourbon barrel derived characteristics come through smooth from all the years spent aging in the barrels with a light linger on the palate with each sip.
