Finally, I found a barrel-aged ale to enjoy. This is no ordinary beer, it is a dark, strong beer of 12.2 ABV & aged in bourbon barrels for up to 3 years. Today I will let the pictures tell the story. As they say "Pictures speak a thousand words". Enjoy!

           The story continues with how they age, how long, and what they add during the aging process. Says "cherries added during the aging process" - fascinating. 😍
