What the brewers say

“Barrel aged Campfire Stout is here! Aged for 9 months in Heaven Hill, Wild Turkey, and Four Roses bourbon barrels, it was blended just a couple weeks ago. Now it’s bottled, kegged and ready to be enjoyed.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Graham crackers, vanilla, balanced bourbon, citrus, and alcohol.”

Flavor: “The molasses and the unique malt sweetness dominate, but are coupled with this dark umami richness that approaches soy sauce, but still stays a healthy distance from that fate. The bourbon barrel contributes to the heat, but also rounds all the flavors together while adding a nice toasted almond and vanilla note that helps compliment the molassess.”

Overall: “A deeply rich beer that provides a bit of a challenge to decipher but offers some nice discoveries all the way.”
