Allagash Brewing Company’s (Portland, ME) Bourbon Barrel Black is pretty amazing. The Belgian style stout is introduced into bourbon barrels and the result is a dark beer dream. This rare treat has only been available on draft for a while now. Finding it has been a bit like seeing a bald eagle in the wild. Rare, and beautiful.
It looks like Allagash is planning to release some of this treat in 75o ml bottles in the future. This week, the brewery was filling bourbon barrels with black, so we do know more is coming. Black is brewed with wheat, oats, barley and candi sugar.
