BOURBON BARREL-AGED PORTER
We set aside a portion of every batch of General Washington's Tavern Porter in freshly emptied bourbon barrels shipped straight from Kentucky. The beer ages for six months, absorbing vanilla, oak and bourbon flavors from the barrel walls. Our Washington's Reserve is the end result – a smooth, aromatic porter with hints of dried fruit in the finish and vanilla on the nose.
STYLE Barrel-Aged Strong Porter
FORMATS 1/6 keg, 1/2 keg
AVAILABILITY By batch
SIGNIFICANT INGREDIENTS Crystal and chocolate malts, molasses, Woodford Reserve bourbon barrels
PAIRINGS We think Washington would have paired this aromatic porter with a steak smothered in rich, burgundy mushroom gravy. The vanilla characteristics of Washington's Reserve go great with desserts like cherries jubilee or bananas Foster.
