Saugatuck Brewing Company – Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Neapolitan Milk Stout Review

This was part of their yearly black Friday release along with Rye Hipster Stout, Raisins Almonds and Figs Oh My!, and Big Kahuna, but enough was left over for a small amount to hit distribution. I haven’t had a barrel aged porter before, so I’m ready to jump in and get a taste of that maple, bourbon and pecan flavor!
