Forget visions of sugar plums — today’s boozy bundle from Braxton will have you seeing visions of bourbon-soaked brews!
And, while these three Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Stouts are as black as coal, I’d never be offended to find them in my stocking! In fact, I’d be more likely to jump up and down like a little kid unwrapping a Nintendo!
If you want to fill your household with glee and merriment, read on to see the delicious treats you’ve got in store:
Dark Charge - Bourbon Barrel Aged with Vanilla & Coffee
Brewed with additions of coffee and vanilla beans, this decadent Stout pours as thick as maple syrup on a snowy morning. Every sip overflows with the intoxicating scents of robust, dark roast coffee, with waves of creamy vanilla, toasted walnuts, and rich cocoa following close behind.
It wraps the tongue in a warm, inviting blanket of chocolate-dipped Bing cherries, caramel, coconut, charred oak, and a hint of black licorice. And, it’s spreading some major Christmas cheer with its 13% ABV!
Dark Charge - S'mores
It’s time to get cozy by the fire and wait for St. Nicholas, because the s’mores iteration of Dark Charge is even more irresistibly delicious than Grandma’s sugar cookies.
The brewers crafted it with real, fluffy marshmallows, cocoa nibs, and graham crackers. Every sip fills me with childhood memories of warm, ooey-gooey desserts on cold December nights.
The aroma, however, is a clear reminder of its very adult 13% ABV: it’s like Irish coffee in a bottle — as though you spiked your morning Starbucks with a shot of whiskey, sweetened it with chocolate syrup, and topped it with a dollop of marshmallow whipped cream.
Dark Charge - Molé
This is Braxton’s most requested variant, and fans anticipate it as eagerly as kids waiting for the first snowfall! The brewers crafted it with cinnamon, vanilla, and ancho chiles, for a spicy and sophisticated kick. Each velvety sip is reminiscent of a dark Mexican chocolate mocha, but with a fiesta-worthy 13% ABV!
As it warms, notes of rich chocolate, roasted coffee, figs, and oaky bourbon dance a sultry rumba across your palate, while savory umami cha-cha’s in on the finish. Just a few sips will have you singing “Feliz Navidad” at the top of your beer-filled lungs!
Whether you cellar this bundle for future merry-making, or gift it to the dark beer lovers on your list, it’s sure to make a bigger splash this holiday season than Tickle Me Elmo in ‘96! And, there’s no waiting in line with throngs of cranky shoppers for these brews.
But, that doesn’t mean you can pull a Schwarzenneger in Jingle All the Way and wait until the last minute — we’ve only got a limited supply of Braxton to go around.
Braxton won Three Medals at the Alltech Commonwealth Craft Beer Cup, and was recently honored with Brewbound’s prestigious Rising Star Award!
*We stocked up on as many bottles as Braxton was willing to give us, but we apologize that we aren’t able to accommodate everyone!
