Main Street Brewing in Vancouver BC has released the 2017 version of their seasonal Stag & Pheasant imperial stout, as well its very limited barrel-aged variant.
For this year’s barrel-aged version they used Heaven Hills bourbon barrels, which they say imparted hints of bourbon and oak that mingle beautifully with the roasted, chocolate, and smoked malts. The beer is said to have a touch of pine and a hint of smoke with a bitterness that balances the sweetness.
Both beers are available now at the Main Street tasting room and select private liquor stores.
