I tried Bell’s Black Note Stout for the first time today (my brother-in-law got his hands on several bottles and brought one over for Thanksgiving), and it was awesome! This is a limited edition beer put out by Bell’s Brewery (Kalamazoo, Michigan), in which they blend two of their stouts (Expedition and Double Cream) and age them in bourbon barrels. This had a really good subtle bourbon/oak taste to it, and it goes down very smooth. We had it with our Thanksgiving dinner, and it paired really well with the heavy food associated with the meal! In addition to a slight bourbon taste, you also taste hints of coffee and chocolate.
These bottles are apparently very hard to come by, and a bit on the pricey side, but if you can score one I would highly recommend you give it a try! Thanks for the drink Brad!
