About the Brew
This brew gets its notes of vanilla, oak, and toasted almonds from its long hibernation spent in bourbon barrels as well as a liquid cacao adjunct.

The roasty and chocolatey flavors in Bourbon Barrel-Aged Cacao make it perfect for turkey or tofu and sweet potato enchiladas with a not-too-spicy mole sauce. Or, go right to dessert with a generous chunk of 80% cacao dark chocolate or a slice of cinnamon coffee cake.Try Beer & Food Pairings on the Technical Tour
