Brewed in the ‘Imperial Style’ and aged for months in Buffalo Trace Bourbon Barrels, Top Sail Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Porter is rich and robust. Brewed in April 2016 with two-row pale, crystal, and chocolate malts, black barley and English Target hops, Top Sail offers malt complexity with flavors of bittersweet chocolate, espresso, and caramel. Barrel aging imparts hints of vanilla, dark cherry, and oak.
Wood barrel aging is an art form. When done right, it’s a wonderful thing. Our barrel-aged beers have been a tradition since 1998 when we joyfully discovered what happens when you pair vintage barrels, dedication and patience.
