This "liquid brownie batter" was aged in a combination of bourbon barrels and finishes out at a mighty 14.17% ABV. Each barrel saw multiple additions of Madagascar vanilla beans, ultimately aging the finished batch of beer with hundreds of pounds over the course of a year.
This year's Madagascar vanilla crop features the rich caramel tones of the coveted corner-piece brownie. Search for a subtle berry compote top-note and revel in the familiar flavors of a heaping scoop of melting vanilla ice cream. More than ever, this beer is the show-stopping companion for an incredible dessert.
