This incredibly beautiful recipe was created with our friends over at Chula Vista Brewing to help celebrate Black History Month. This bourbon Barrel-aged Imperial Stout was inspired by the classic cocktail, the Old Fashioned.
This is our second-anniversary release of Black is Beautiful. The nose is instantly hit with chocolate, cherry, and orange with a hint of bourbon. At first taste, the palate is smacked with a burst of tart cherry followed by a lingering orange and spice finish. This full-bodied barrel-aged stout is tart and sweet and surprisingly refreshing with medium carbonation.
A portion of all bottle sales will be going to the Michael James Jackson Foundation. The Michael James Jackson Foundation is a grant-making organization that funds scholarship awards to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color within the brewing and distilling trades. The program is open to candidates at the beginning of their careers and those looking to continue their education. #blackisbeautiful
