Ommegang Bourbon Barrel Vanilla Smoked Porter
Add to Cart
Bourbon Barrel Vanilla Smoked Porter is brewed with a carefully crafted blend of smoked and other malts, and hopped with Saaz before gracefully aging in bourbon barrels with Madagascar vanilla beans.
Bourbon Barrel Vanilla Smoked Porter pours a deep brown, almost black, with a thick tan head that quickly dissipates. Rich notes of cocoa, vanilla, and subtle hints of oak and coconut follow the prominent aroma of bourbon. Vanilla flavor leads followed by bourbon and dark chocolate. The smooth mouthfeel and surprisingly light body lead to a finish that is moderately dry, with subdued notes of lingering roast.
This 9.5% ABV beer is an ideal pairing with dark meat such as braised lamb shanks, seared hanger steak, or roast duck. The mouthfeel is an excellent accompaniment for similarly creamy cheeses such as Camembert, and the sweet vanilla and bourbon notes make it a great pairing with desserts like apple tarts or spice cake.
