From the brewery
The Rusty Nail
Style: Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout with Cinnamon, Licorice, and Smoked Barley
Description: The Rusty Nail begins life as The First Nail, an oatmeal stout of epic proportions with brewer’s licorice, smoked barley, and pale malt and aged on cinnamon bark. She becomes the Rusty Nail after spending 15 months in 12-year old bourbon barrels. The Rusty Nail pounds your palate, challenges your perception of all that you’ve known of beer, and leaves you wanting…another sip. “A fine beer may be judged by one sip, but it’s better to be thoroughly sure.” –VWP
Age this beer, please! But try one now…go on.
Down & Dirty: Pale, Vienna, and Smoked malts, Wheat with Flaked Oats and Magnum and Yakima Goldings hops.
Color: Deep Black
Aroma: Molasses, cinnamon, wood, dark fruit
Flavor: Licorice, cocoa, bourbon, slightly smoky
