Year of New Beer: Bourbon Barrel Aged Skipping Stone, Jackie O's Brewery (OH)
Written By: Dion on 11/27/2019
A beer that's been around for a while, but for some reason has always escaped me. Fantastic nose on this one...caramel, burnt sugar, sweet tobacco, leather, raisins, plums...all representing on the tongue as well. Flavors are rich and sweet. The dark fruits develop into figs and dates. A molasses note is backed by a subtle oak and remarkably restrained bourbon given the alcohol percentage. This is one to sip slowly and savor. Excellent.
