Kentucky Vanilla Waypost (2021)
Vanilla and Bourbon Barrel-Aged Anniversary Imperial Stout
Kentucky Vanilla Waypost is a Vanilla Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout.
Consisting of a blend of barrel-aged Anniversary Stouts, 75% having aged in Vanilla Barrels while the other 25% was blended in from Buffalo Trace Bourbon Barrels.
The result of our patience is a 10.4% abv Imperial Stout with a smooth, rich body. A dark base blending hefty amounts of Chocolate Malt, Roasted Barley, and Midnight Wheat creates a robust, jet black beer softened with additions of Flaked Oats.
Extended aging in Vanilla Barrels — when combined with a purposeful addition of Bourbon Barrel-Aged Waypost — creates complex layers of pleasing Vanilla sweetness with warming notes of cinnamon & caramelized sugar.
Available for a limited time starting in March 2021 to celebrate The Virginia Beer Company’s 5 Year Anniversary.
