A Note on This Beer
Today’s Barrel-Aged Stouts are based on George Washington’s personal rye whiskey recipe!
Ol’ Georgy knew how to get the party started, and Four Fathers Brewing carries forth his legacy with their Barrel-Aged Wheelhouse Imperial Coffee Stout series. Today, you can score the 2020 vintages of their unadulterated BA version AND its Turtle candy counterpart!
After aging for 4 months in Journeyman Distillery Rye Whiskey barrels alongside additions of locally-sourced coffee and smooth vanilla beans, Barrel-Aged Wheelhouse boasts a robust, Irish Coffee-like decadence. Meanwhile, the barrels impart their fruity rye whiskey quality to create gently spicy complexity.
Sip after sip sends the taste buds drifting away on a smooth river of cherry cordial chocolate with fresh-brewed espresso.
For Barrel-Aged Wheelhouse - Turtle, the award-winning brewers at Four Fathers drench that same coffee and vanilla-infused Stout base in gooey gobs of caramel, chocolate, and black walnut. Each luscious mouthful infuses the Irish Coffee decadence of the original with the richness of chewy Godiva turtle chocolates. A hint of toasted walnuts appears on the finish.
Scoring these two barrel-aged forces of nature would probably make George Washington himself turn green with envy. It’s a good thing he’s not around to see these brews — if he were, he might get his fix from our meager stash of 240 bottles of each variant.
And we can’t have that. These hyper limited brews are for you, so long as you’re quick enough to grab them!
