Imperial Milk Stout aged in Bourbon barrels
Rhino Suit was the first spirits-barrel-aged beer we released at Alesong (way back in the winter of 2016!), but remains one of our favorites. This year’s rendition of our imperial milk stout was matured in freshly emptied Heaven Hill bourbon barrels to add velvety layers of vanilla and coconut to the sweet and chocolatey malt flavors of the base stout.
