Ebony and Oak – The Bruery ABV 8% – Stout Aged in oak bourbon barrels – This was one of three beers in my allocation for the first membership of the preservation society membership I go for Father’s Day. This is a true great one amoung the barrel aged stouts. Black in color with a white head and lacing. Scent if oak and malts. Taste of sweet vanilla, oak and roasted malts. Having this stout aged in oak bourbon barrels gives it a whiskey aftertaste and a heat all the way through the mouthful. I will be buying this again when I get my reserve society membership.
