Description

Join us at Anchor Brewing for the release of our Barrel Aged Purple Velvet Stout!

Anchor Brewing’s latest barrel aged beer is an inky purplish stout that has been aged in French Oak Cabernet Sauvignon barrels for the last two years. We took the very last batch of Flying Cloud Stout that we brewed and laid it down in Cabernet barrels to smooth it out into a super mellow velvety tannic explosion of flavor! The beer showcases layers of red wine and beautiful funk along with dried fruit, leather, and fresh pipe tobacco, making for a real treat. At 10.3% ABV, this is a beer to sip and savor with friends, so we packaged it in a 22 oz. bottle with handwritten labels.


Tasting Notes:

Appearance – Inky black, thick brown espresso-style foam with a purplish hue
Aroma – Roasted ripe red fruit with hints of raisins, dates and dark chocolate
Taste – Sweet smokiness with big tannic oakiness and an acidic bite
Finish – Dry and leathery with lingering layers of cherry pipe tobacco

10.3% ABV & 45 IBUs
