This is a copper pot distilled, NCF, NCA distillate produced by distilling an imperial stout, made from cherry wood smoked grain, that is aged in bourbon barrels from the notoriously solid Against The Grain fellas. This beer is Bo and Luke, and this resulting distillate is known as Bo & Luke Brewsky, distilled at Copper & Kings, in Kentucky USA.
Sweet marshmallow, raisin bread, thick rich cocoa. Very stout-y on the nose. Vanilla, toffee, some faint toasted coconut. Faint cinnamon.
Medium mouth feel. Coffee, toffee, raisin bread. Faintly musty. Almost faintly hoppy / hemp-y. Some heat. Vanilla, some marshmallow.
Long, sweet and rich. Honey, maple, vanilla. Lots of marshmallow, cocoa, raisin bread.
This was super interesting. I wish wed see more releases like this, as it can do super interesting stuff in the profile. The nose is so BBA stout like it is insane. The palate is more brandy / whiskey and stout. The finish is almost all whiskey. Crazy interesting, crazy fun.
