Full Sail Brewing Releases 2014 Vintage Bourbon Aged Imperial Stout 

In the 1990s, a master distiller visiting from Scotland, and a Brewmaster from a small brewery in Hood River, serendipitously crossed paths. Over a pint or two, they shared their labors of love and pondered a rather intriguing question: what would happen if beer and distilled spirits met somewhere along the way? The outcome of their inspiration was Full Sailís Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, an annual celebration of the best of American beer and American bourbon. With a tip of the hat to the Scotsman that inspired the idea, Full Sail offers this finely crafted beer for a limited time.
 

2014 Vintage Bourbon Aged Imperial Stout

       
Full Sail Brewing will release their 2014 Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout in early February. This beer has been patiently and carefully aging in bourbon casks for over a year. Highly anticipated by beer lovers every year, this release from the Brewery has received numerous accolades over the years, including gold and silver medals, five star ratings, and a bounty of happy customers.
    

    
This beer was brewed in December of 2012 and aged in Kentucky bourbon casks from Heaven Hill, Four Roses, and Makers Mark. This extended aging presents hints of vanilla and allows the Imperial Stout to pick up the flavors of the wood, bourbon, and oak. The aging accentuates the robust character of the Imperial Stout and brings out the depth of flavor from the bourbon creating chocolate and caramel notes and an overall elegantly sophisticated beer.

The beer is racked in small batches and is available in only very limited quantities. It cellars well, so if you store a few bottles in a dark, cool place and be patient, you will be rewarded for your effort and restraint. This special beer is available early February in 22oz. bottles and draft. ABV 9.84% IBU 40.

To celebrate the release of this beer, Full Sail is planning two Horizontal Tasting events that highlight the individual bourbons. ďBourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout is a blend of the three barrel varieties, Heaven Hill, Four Roses, and Makerís Mark, so we thought it would be interesting to try a bit of each before blending. We kegged off a very small stash of each variety for the release. Join us to celebrate the release and taste the differences between the three individual bourbons and the final blend,Ē welcomed Full Sail Executive Brewmaster Jamie Emmerson. The special tapping will take place at 5 p.m., Thursday, February 6th, at Full Sailís Brew Pub in Hood River, and at Full Sailís Riverplace Brewery in Portland, Oregon on Monday, February 10th at 6 p.m. For more information call the Full Sail Brew Pub at 541-386-2247.
