NEW RELEASE | Little Sister 2018
A Woodford Reserve Bourbon, barrel-aged, Russian Imperial Stout with cocoa nibs and sour cherry. Roasty malt with deep dark fruit flavors and a warming, bittersweet chocolate finish.
Aroma: Rich and complex, with smells of sour cherry, dark chocolate, fruity esters, and hints of alcohol. Fruity esters are moderate, and take on a complex, dark fruit (e.g., plums, prunes, raisins) character.
Appearance: Color is jet black. Opaque. Deep tan head. High alcohol and viscosity may be visible in “legs” when beer is swirled in a glass.
Flavor: Rich, deep, complex with sour cherry fruit, roasted malt, dark chocolate, fruity esters, low hop bitterness and flavor, and a light warming alcohol finish. Malt backbone is rich and shows some supporting caramel, and toasty flavors. The palate and finish are lightly sweet, with some lingering roastiness and warming character.
Mouthfeel: Full body with a velvety, luscious texture. Gentle smooth alcohol warmth persists throughout.
