Flavours to expect
This beer has been aged in barrels that once contained bourbon and rye whiskey. And there’s rye in the malts too of course, which should give it a deep red look and a snappy spicy taste. Expect complexity — that’s what brewers want when they stick stuff in barrels — and notes of maple and vanilla.
A beer like this should love bresaola or perhaps some spicy salami. If you want to go sweeter try a pud that involves pecans with rich caramel or toffee and perhaps a creamy vanilla element too.
