One of the top rated beers on Beer Me BC is the Townsite Brewing Oatmeal Stout. The Powell River based brewery has turned up the storm’s intensity with the new, barrel aged version of the beer. This limited edition brew is part of Cedric’s Barrel Aged program and pours from the bomber bottle as a dark and nearly black colour. Topped with a thick finger’s worth of lacing head the Perfect Storm gives off an aroma of oak, bourbon and still has a base of big roasty stout tones. The flavour takes on a fairly large oak character and the bourbon notes to match. While the hit of oak is rather intense the beer itself is only 5.5% alcohol. This leaves a bit of a lighter body and profile to not blow your socks off with intensity. By barrel aging a lighter beer the oak comes through but the body is quite smooth and the stout tones of coffee and chocolate linger in the background. As a fan of the Perfect Storm, the barrel aged version is a twist of something different but based on a great flavoured beer.

Alcohol – 5.5%
