Formerly known as Bourbon Abominable
Bourbon Barrel Aged Winter Ale
This year’s release of B-bomb is aged in 12 & 15-year-old American Oak whiskey barrels and is a blend of 24 and 12-month old barrel strength Winter Ale. B-bomb achieves distinct bourbon, oak, cacao, leather, and dark coffee notes from its extended barrel aging and barrel blending. Each barrel contributes a different note, and combining each barrel to create a coherent tone is a distinct art and true pleasure. Please do enjoy this unique barrel-aged ale today but know that B-bomb will age gracefully for at least another 5 years. Don’t Be Afraid To Be Abominable.
