The Beer:

We fermented and aged one of our flagship beers, Pirate's Breakfast, an Imperial Oatmeal Stout, in four Buffalo Trace Bourbon Barrels for 6 months. The final blend is smoothly balanced and has complex layers of chocolate, vanilla, oak, bourbon, spice, and dark fruit characteristics.

The Process:

BBA Pirate's Breakfast, Batch #1 was brewed in June, 2014, barrel fermented and barrel aged for 6 months. Bottled in December 2014 and allowed to bottle condition. The final product was blended with Council's non-BA Pirate's Breakfast to achieve the desired levels of bourbon and mouthfeel. Bottled in 22oz bottles with crowns only.
