In the fall of 2015 Odell took a small batch of their most popular seasonal releases, Mountain Standard Double Black IPA, and locked it away in their cellar. This Mountain Standard has been aging in bourbon barrels for over a year and is ready to be released as the first batch of Barrel Aged Mountain Standard Double Black IPA.
"Barrels & time can yield some amazing changes to the character of a bold beer like Mountain Standard," explains Head-Brewer, Bill Beymer. "The oak has definitely performed some magic here. The assertive hop bitterness has made way for incredible flavors of sweet chocolate, dried figs, toffee, vanilla and caramel."
Coming in at 10.6%, Barrel-Aged Mountain Standard will be available in very limited quantities as a single 12oz bottle across Odell’s 14-state distribution footprint.
