Looks like we should have waited a week on the 8 Bit Beer tasting.
Announced today via the newsletter:
Victoria B.C., March 19th 2012: Our Double Barrel Scotch Ale is up from the cellar and ready to hit the shelves. A seasonal favourite, this hand-crafted scotch ale was aged in fresh Tennessee whisky barrels and then allowed to mature in cabernet sauvignon oak barrels from the sunny Okanagan Valley.
The result is a sophisticated beer that’s not too serious to have a little fun–your senses get smacked with great bourbon aroma complimented by a slightly smoky peat flavour, with smooth rich vanilla tones warming their way underneath. It’s the perfect addition to your beer collection whether wear a monacle or a pair of Raybans.
The Double Barrel Scotch Ale is available for a limited time at finer craft-focused private liquor stores. Enjoy in a snifter at cellar temperatures.
