Big Grove will be releasing one of their more anticipated beers on August 27th as “Velvet” comes back to their taprooms! About Velvet:
VANILLA BARREL-AGED IMPERIAL STOUT
This special brew is an Extended Boil, Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout that we aged in freshly emptied Kentucky Bourbon barrels. The beer was aged for a year and then finished on Grade A Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans. You can expect a viscous mouthfeel, notes of roasted malt, marshmallow, dark chocolate, and an explosion of vanilla—highlighted by a smoothness that only comes from age and using the finest ingredients.
Along with “Velvet”, Big Grove will be releasing “Tropical Jam Fruit Sour” and “Double Norwegian Demon”. To pre-order your Velvet please click HERE! Below is more info on release day:
