Year of New Beer: Jamaican Rum Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout, Boulevard Brewing Co (Kansas City, MO)

Written By: Dion on 03/03/2019

After a year-long slumber in barrels, this one emerges with deep notes of chocolate, brown sugar, and rum augmented by traces of coconut and oak. Sweet on the tongue, with chocolate and roasted malts leading the way. Plum and raisin blend nicely with the spiciness of the rum, adding interest to the layers of coffee and caramel. This is crazy smooth for 14.5%, and just a ridiculous buy at $4. I'm gonna be wishing I had cleaned out the shelf on these.
