CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – Upstreet Craft Brewing has announced the release in its Million Acres series of “unique barrel-aged and farmhouse-style ales, hand-bottled and bottle-conditioned in very limited batches.”
Bourbon Barrel-Aged Chocolate Salted Lager (10.5% abv) was aged for a year in a Buffalo Trace barrel, and is described as follows:
Big but forgiving, it pours a deep dark brown bordering on black. Flavour of raisin will come through on your first sip, followed by the upfront caramel, toffee, and light vanilla, finishing with a smooth mellowed cocoa bitterness and balanced bourbon aftertaste.
Bourbon Barrel-Aged Chocolate Salted Lager was released today (February 16th) at the brewery in a limited run of 200 x 750 ml bottles, with a Facebook post indicating that only 60 were remaining by mid-afternoon, so a sell out before the end of the day is quite likely.
