A Note on This Beer
Do you know what the best kind of birthday party is? The kind where they give YOU a gift for even showing up.
Well, Wild Leap just turned 3 years old this September, and they didn’t just throw one big bash with one little gift for their fans. They turned the whole month into one long celebration and topped it off by brewing an ultra-limited birthday Stout!
The fifth and final release in this exclusive anniversary series is today’s Birthday Month: Barrel Aged Cake & Ice Cream Stout. After unwrapping all its luscious layers of whiskey-laden chocolate cake flavor, I’m really not sure whether I’m celebrating their birthday or my own!
To make this indulgent dessert beer, Wild Leap blended their Vanilla Ice Cream Stout aged in award-winning ASW whiskey barrels and a mouthwatering Cake Stout. Then, they tied an extra ribbon of silky lactose into the 10% ABV brew for even more cakey fluffiness.
Every sip is like a slice of German chocolate cake layered with caramel coffee filling, and all slathered in decadently soft cream cheese frosting. And of course, with a hefty scoop of scotch vanilla ice cream on the side — it is a party after all!
And it’s a party that I don’t ever want to stop! But alas, all good things must eventually come to an end — once the last cans of Barrel Aged Cake & Ice Cream are gone, that’s lights-out on this birthday beer bash.
*USA Today named Wild Leap the Best New Brewery of 2019!
