Boulevard Imperial Stout X Manhattan is ready to join the brewery’s Smokestack Series.
Recently, the Kansas City, Missouri based brewery expanded their well-known Smokestack Series to include a few entries with new treatments. The most recent example – Rye-on-Rye Sazerac. (Brewed to mimic the cocktail.)
Boulevard Imperial Stout X Manhattan incorporate the base imperial stout, aged in Jefferson’s Manhattan barrels, that were used age the cocktail
As a special treat for lovers of big, complex stouts, Boulevard Brewing Company offers the 2016 Imperial Stout “X” series. The “X” factor stands for key variables added to each of several different limited releases throughout the year. This batch was aged in cooperage that had been used to barrel finish Jefferson’s Manhattan cocktail, boding k an oaky/vanilla character with notes of earthy spice.
On shelves now is a sazerac inspired edition of Rye-on-Rye, also a part of the Smokestack Series.
Boulevard Imperial Stout X Manhattan is a 750 milliliter bottle release.
