- Our Clubs
Anyway, our rackhouse at the end of 2017 was filled with a pretty good variety of different beers that were tasting delicious, so while we knew we were getting ready to blend up some more specific batches of things (bourbon barrel-aged stout, rum-barrel-aged quad, etc.), we also wanted to create a blend that encompassed and showcased the variety of barrels we were cellaring. So we sat down with a table full of barrel samples and tasted them all, weighing the relative flavors and characteristics of each and how they might fit together. Then comes the really fun part: blending!
The final blend that we’re presenting to you now as Rackhouse Reserve is a combination of imperial milk stouts aged in barrels that formerly held Jamaican rum, Old Forester bourbon, Woodford Reserve bourbon, and Early Times whiskey. The result is a rich, chocolatey stout that oozes with aromas of rum-induced molasses and brown sugar over the top of a bourbon vanilla base. We recommend serving this one in a snifter and a little bit on the warmer side so you can experience all the layers of decadent flavor revealed.
