This Imperial Stout is a dark colored ale brewed with pale, caramel, chocolate and roasted malts. Oats are added for a full, sweet taste. After fermentation the ale is cold aged for six weeks to ensure a smooth flavor before bourbon barrel aging begins.
For centuries New Orleans’ famed Bourbon Street has inspired good times and fine libations like our Abita Bourbon Street Imperial Stout. This hand-crafted artisanal brew is aged for months in wooden barrels used to make small batch bourbon whiskey. During barrel aging, the brew absorbs the flavors of the barrels which intensifies the taste and aroma of roasted malt, warm vanilla and smooth bourbon.
