Year of New Beer: Saturn Ascends, Alexandria Brewing Co (KY)

Written By: Dion on 09/26/2020

Big, roasty, bourbon barrel deliciousness on the nose from the minute this hits the glass. Chocolate, coffee, molasses, and a bit of campfire char alongside a solid bourbon-soaked oak. Pretty aggressive bourbon greets the tongue, which I don't mind at all. The chocolate and coffee combine nicely with a very subtle hop presence, offering up a mild layer of earthy bitterness. Hints of caramel and burnt sugar with just a trace of vanilla. Charred toast, oak, and bourbon through the finish. Maybe just a bit thin, but overall a solid beer.
