Bomber Brewing Shows Some Valentines Love With Barrel Aged Choqlette Porter

BOMBER’S VALENTINE RELEASE WAS AGED WITH LOVE (AND KENTUCKY BOURBON)

BBA CHOQBOURBON BARREL-AGED CHOQLETTE PORTER: After six months in Bardstown’s Heaven Hill Distillery bourbon barrels, our Choqlette Porter has transformed into a whole new beer. Vanilla and oak notes marry wonderfully with the Choqlette’s roasty, dark chocolate undertones and the time spent on wood has imparted a well-rounded silkiness to its mouthfeel.

Choqlette Porter was a love letter in a bottle from the brewer to his wife, so this evolution seems a most fitting Valentine.
