Phase Three Brewing 01&02
What the brewers say
"1 & 2 is a very special batch to us. filled as S-001 & S-002 these are the very first casks that were filled here at phase three. We let them rest for 26 months with minimal temperature control. the resulting beer is full of char, subtle smoke, bakers chocolate, and dried fruit. This batch will be sold in limited amounts during special weekends over the next several years."
What our panel thought
“Aroma of chocolate, coffee, low floral alcohol, soft vanilla. Strong coffee and chocolate-malt flavor; intriguing toast-nutty note adds levity, with fig, vanilla. Huge barrel character. Chewy.”
What our editors thought
“Umami nose with bourbon high points—rich, savory, just a bit sweet. Bourbon-barrel tannin and vanilla; coconut offers an earthy foil. Aged yet vibrant.”
