Hi-Wire Brewing - South Slope Specialty Brewery 10W-40 Bourbon Barrel-Aged

What the brewers say

“Brewed with chocolate, coffee, vanilla, lactose; aged in Bulleit bourbon barrels.”

What our panel thought

“Aroma of coconut, licorice, coffee, light caramel. Dark chocolate, coffee notes lead the sip followed by a pleasant lingering bitterness. Subsequent sips give the impression of a Dark Chocolate Almond Joy. Firm bitterness balances the sweetness.”

What our editors thought

“Citrusy hops add a smart overtone to the bourbon, coffee, chocolate of the aroma. The sip eschews sweetness for a direct, American-stout bitterness softened somewhat by modest bourbon and vanilla, but it’s no dessert stout.”
