Aging a minimum of 17 months in Bourbon Barrels transforms our Double Stout into a barrel-aged gem. Upon pouring, a black brew emerges with dark brown beer foam and the aromatics of dark chocolate covered bourbon cherries (if such a thing exists). The aromas carry through to the flavor, bourbon barrel enhanced stout having hints of cherry, vanilla, oak, dark chocolate, coffee, and roast barley. A full but not too heavy a body holds it all together for an elegant or even “Imperial” drinking experience. Silva Stout is named in honor of brewmaster Chuck Silva.
Sleepin with Shaggy:
After spending 4 years in Brandy barrels it became time to unleash the dark monster within. Thick toffee aromatics exude with dense layers of fig, molasses, caramel, and a medley of dark fruits. Sweet flavors of toffee and caramel mingle with the warming spice of vanilla, sherry-like notes, and brandy barrel oak tannin. When served above 55 degrees Fahrenheit (highly recommended) more dark fruits like plum, date, raisin, and fig are further revealed. Our CEO/Founder Mike Hinkley has enjoyed pairing this Brandy Barrel Aged Barleywine with a big stuffed “Shaggy” dog that came from the local fair carnies and therefore we now have “Sleepin with Shaggy”.
