Bourbon barrel-aged Times 8 collaboration with Stillwater Artisanal (US)
When we made the original Times 8, we thought we could kill craft with a beer that brought an over-the-top, 16% ABV imperial pasty stout together with a Willy Wonka assortment of vanilla, cocoa, maple syrup, butterscotch and coconut. But once again, we were mistaken – we forgot to age it in barrels. So to put the cherry on top of this ridiculous collab, we placed the beer in fresh bourbon barrels for a year to suck out all of the spicy, vanilla oaky notes and smooth, boozy finish. We’re sure you’re going to love this monster of a stout – just make sure you bring an insulin shot and a pint of Pilsner to wash it down.
