Year of New Beer: Crates, Trillium Brewing Co/Private Press Brewing (MA/CA)

Written By: Dion on 01/16/2021

 Out and about picking up some beer and new albums today and lucked into this pour. No crazy adjuncts, just big imperial stout and bourbon barrel. Nose is chocolate, charred malts, caramel, and hints of oak. Perfectly balanced flavors. Slightly sweet to start, giving way to very subtle dark fruits and a little bourbon heat. Chocolate and caramel linger through the finish. Doesn't drink at all like it's 14% ABV would have you believe.
