Oskar Blues Barrel-Aged Ten FIDY 2018
What the brewers say
Aged in bourbon barrels for at least 8 months, resulting in vanilla, oak, and bourbon flavors.
What our panel thought
A blend of roast and bourbon across the nose. Cherry pie covered in chocolate with a side of roasted malt. Balanced finish falling on the side of a touch too roasty.
What our editors thought
A quintessentially barrel-aged stout nose touches on oak and spirits with an underlying richness. The sip is clean and crisp with a rich and slightly sweet mid palate braced by a cleansing tannin. Rich, but not too rich. Sweet, but not too sweet. Expertly balanced and engaging.
