4 Mile Brewing Barrel Aged English Strong Ale Review 4 Mile Brewing Co. – Bourbon Oak Aged English Strong Ale Review

Vancouver Island’s 4 Mile Brewing Has been aging this beer for some time. As a Bourbon Barrel Aged beer this English Strong Ale is dubbed “Stiff Upper Lip” in its limited edition nature. At 8.2% alcohol and 40 IBUs the beer pours from a wax dipped bomber bottle as a deep amber brown colour and has a thick finger of head atop the glass. On the nose comes notes of bourbon and oak along side vanilla and a dark cherry tone. Tasting the beer it is smooth on the tongue and has a smooth vanilla-oak flavour to it. The Bourbon tones are less sharp than you may expect making for a smoother than expected brew. The oak character comes through with Vanilla and a dark, roasted cherry tone. The English Strong Ale flavour has enough to it to hold up to the barrel aging but also is light enough to let the barrel aging process truly shine. This is a smooth, flavourful and very tasty winter warming brew.

Alcohol – 8.2%
IBU – 40
