CELLAR NOTES
Chuck, Jeff, and Mitch carefully selected 25 of 75 barrels used to age this beer with the goal of blending in a little bit of everything the barrels had to offer. Some produced bitter oaky tones, while others contributed sweet vanilla and maple flavors or earthy smokiness. The result is a complex beer with a perfect harmony of rich flavors.
