GINGERBREAD_STOUT_FOR_WEB_2015.jpg

Imperial Milk Stout Brewed with Fresh Local Ginger and Honey

Made with baby ginger from Casselmonte Farm and wildflower honey from Bearer Farms, Hardywood Gingerbread Stout captures the terroir of Central Virginia in a rich, creamy libation with a velvety mouthfeel and an intriguing evolution of notes from milk chocolate and vanilla, to honeycomb and cinnamon, to a snap of ginger in the finish.

BARREL_SERIES_BOURBON_BARREL_GBS_2017_TT

Gingerbread Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels

Hardywood Gingerbread Stout, described by BeerAdvocate as “freagin’ Christmas in a bottle,” is an imperial milk stout brewed with vanilla beans, cinnamon, fresh Casselmonte Farm baby ginger and Bearer Farms wildflower honey. Gingerbread Stout is then matured in Virginia bourbon barrels, where it adapts an incredibly mellow character with oak, caramel and bourbon undertones, and emerges 12 weeks later as Bourbon GBS. A festive blend of spice character laces this rich, chocolatey stout, which warms the palate and the soul.

 

Best With: Dark chocolate desserts, spiced holiday pies, deep introspection, and good will towards others.  (Does this describe Beer Klub or what?)

Strength (ABV): 10.6%

Color (SRM): 40°L

Bitterness (IBU): 55
