 “Bourbon is sweet and boozy, and the oak has an earthy/woody flavor, so when you introduce something chocolatey and hoppy, over time they mellow and really complement each other,” head brewer Jayson Hartings said in a release.

 “It’s an excellent beer to age in the bottle for a couple years, but it’s great fresh too. Big beers like this are perfect in the winter, to stay in and share with someone over the holidays.”
