5. Real Ale - Four Horsemen (2016)
Belgain Quad - 8.5% ABV - Austin, TX
A Belgian-style Quad aged in Real Ale’s own whiskey barrels for 7 months. Aromas and flavors of dark fruit, vanilla and oak weave together beautifully.
6. Deschutes Brewery - The Abyss 2015
Stout - Imperial / Double - 12.2% ABV - Milton, DE
Rich Imperial Stout brewed with black strap molasses, licorice, vanilla bean & cherry bark. Barrel aged in a mix of Kentucky bourbon, Oregon oak and Pinot Noir casks and then blended together.
110. Dogfish Head Craft Brewery - Fruit-Full Fort (2018)
Strong Ale - 17.2% ABV - Portland, OR
A blend of berries – blackberry, raspberry, boysenberry & elderberry – provides a depth and complexity reminiscent of a jammy red wine. A malty sweetness combines with the tart fruit to create one boozy monster.
111. Goose Island Beer Co. - Bourbon County Brand Stout 2018
Stout - Imperial / Double - 14.7% ABV - Chicago, IL
The OG barrel-aged stout. A liquid as dark and dense as a black hole with thick foam the color of a bourbon barrel.
190. Real Ale - Codex Triplex (2015)
Sour - 10.8% ABV - Blanco, TX
What began life as Devil’s Backbone, this Belgian-style golden ale then spent over 12 months in oak barrels with Brettanomyces and soured with lactobacillus. The result is a heavy yet light ale that has a complex aroma of bright fruit, oak and an enticing funk, with a flavor that finishes dry and slightly tart.
