535. Allagash Brewing Coolship Single Barrel One
This is my second Coolship beer from Allagash and I have a Cerise in the house somewhere so there will be a third Coolship review sometime. This is their Single Barrel One which is simply described as Ale aged in oak bourbon barrels.
Another small bottled, actually had this one immediately after the Crooked Stave St Bretta in the previous review. This one was much more complex than the St Bretta. Appearance is a nice orange with no head and minimal carbonation. Aroma starts the complexity with some malts, bourbon and maybe some vanilla. Taste is even more complex with a nice amount of funk, some bourbon and lots of other things going on.
This one drinks more like a wine than a beer as the carbonation is minimal. Really enjoyable beer that is very hard to describe. You will just need to find a bottle and give it a try.
Pros: Very complex
Alcohol Content: 8.1% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): ??
