1. Prairie Bourbon Paradise
Imperial Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels with Coconut and Vanilla. 15.9% ABV

4. Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout 2019
This year’s Bourbon County Stout, aged in a mix of Heaven Hill, Buffalo Trace, and Wild Turkey barrels, yields a rich, complex mouthfeel. Flavors of cocoa, fudge, vanilla, caramel, almond, plus leather and tobacco, permeate this beer and deepen with each sip. We’ve bottled Bourbon County Stout for 15 years and this year’s vintage is one that you will want to hold on to for years to come. 14.5% ABV
5. Oskar Blues Barrel Aged Ten FIDY Imperial Stout
Aged through four seasons and from a blend of the top Bourbons around, this Ten Fidy has morphed into a monster of cranked up flavor. Espresso, burnt sugar, rich chocolate, caramel notes are now driving alongside the vanilla, oak, bourbon from the barrel and been smoothed out during maturation. Even at 12.9% (75 IBUs) it is cool and drinkable, letting each sip add more and more complexity.
6. Samuel Adams Utopias 2019
Our most recent release is a blend of batches, some having been aged up to 24 years in a variety of barrels. The recipe includes Utopias aged in a variety of barrels including new Scandinavian Aquavit barrels as well as a portion of the final blend aged in Moscat barrels, a first time for the beer.
