What's left to be said about Barrel-Aged Affogato? Easily on the shortlist of our most beloved beers of all time, we're proud to release this beer once again, more than three years and two dozen confectionary-inspired Imperial Stout releases later.
Faced with the post-meal quandary of coffee or dessert, Affogato is the Italian solution. Sourcing coffee from both brewers' partner roasters, Barrington for Trillium and Mostra for J. Wakefield, we've then layered Madagascar vanilla beans, lactose, and brown sugar on top of a massive bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout to mimic the wonderful experience of espresso-meets-gelato.
Barrel-Aged Affogato is decadent, rich, and palate-coating. Presenting a vicious pitch-black color, we perceive aromas of vanilla cream, fresh-pulled espresso, toasted marshmallow, and pronounced, oaky bourbon. Boasting a full, satisfying body and an indulgent finish, we're excited to once again share Barrel-Aged Affogato with you.
