Imperial American Bock has aged over five months in Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels. This beer was the 7th release in Shmaltz’s Limited Engagement Barrel Aged Series. A portion of the proceeds of Coney Island Craft Lagers® help Coney Island USA, a 501(c)(3) Arts Non-Profit, fulfill its mission to defend the honor of lost forms of American popular culture in Brooklyn’s historic Coney Island neighborhood.
While the original Human Blockhead® was conceived as a tough-as-nails strong lager, Barrel-Aged Human Blockhead® is the evolution of a true professional; bearing the signature richness of Munich and Vienna malt, but emerging from the barrel softened and silky, with hints of maple, caramel, and vanilla.
