Bourbon Barrel Aged Coffee Oatmeal Stout - Zwei

I was alerted to a 15 gallon used Bourbon Barrel from Journeyman Distillery (thanks Jen Mackey) and was lucky enough to grab one.  Beings Founders KBS is my favorite BBA Stout I decided to brew a big Coffee Oatmeal Stout and fill the barrel.

Tasting Cherry Lambic

While I tried the raspberry version over a month ago I was hesitant to try this variant due to it being slightly ropey 'sick' when I bottled it. But it showed no indication of the pedio ropeyness when I cracked the bottle.  Lucky for me I had it pointed away from me, cause as soon as I took the cage off the cork came out like a bat out of hell.

Tasting Raspberry Lambic

I finally got around to tasting my Raspberry Lambic that was bottled in the beginning of October.  Not only was I pleased with the final product, nicely carbed, decidedly tart with a mild amount of funk and great raspberry taste.  It has an amazing dark ruby color and I got to share the first bottle with friends and family.
