A Note on This Beer
When you think of Kentucky’s beverage of choice, there’s only one option: bourbon, yessiree! So it’s no wonder Kentucky’s #1 Ranked Beer on BeerAdvocate is Against the Grain’s Bourbon Barrel-Aged 70K Milk Stout. It’s 13% ABV and tastes like straight bourbon-injected chocolate ice cream!
Earning a 4.32 on BeerAdvocate for its sinfully indulgent flavors, the Louisville brewery takes their creamy, lactose sugar-laced 35K Milk Stout and doubles down on its ABV. Then they add an extra layer of oaky complexity from 8 months of bourbon barrel-aging.
Breathe in a storm of dark chocolate and bourbon-drenched dark fruits. Once it hits your tongue, a thick, smooth sweetness of milk chocolate and caramel wash over the palate in a mighty wave. A touch of mesquite and oak spice reel in the sweetness. The booze is so masked by the cavalcade of bold flavors that it drove Untappd user @Phil W. to say, “Holy shit!! 13% ABV has never been so smooth!! Even after it warms up, it still drinks like a 6%.” Damn, Phil, how many bottles did you drink?
Taste the trinity of bourbon, big booze, and chocolatey dessert-like sweetness in 70K and you’ll instantly understand why it’s Kentucky’s top brew.
