#beeradvent Day 16: Brooklyn Improved Old Fashioned

Barrel-aged rye ale with botanicals & bitters, 12.8%

An Old Fashioned is a cocktail made from whiskey, sugar, and bitters (stirred, not shaken), and usually with a bit of citrus peel. Brooklyn Brewery have improved the Old Fashioned by making it into a beer!

This is a strong rye beer, imbued with various spices and peels including bitter orange peel, lemon peel, nutmeg, cinnamon, coriander, bitter gentian root and cloves. This was then all aged in WhistlePig Rye Whiskey oak barrels.

What we get is silky spice of rye, a firm herbal bitterness, some bright citrus and then warmth from the oak. At 12.8% and in 750ml bottles, this is a wonderful beer to share with friends and family over the Christmas period.
