AUSTIN, Texas (December , 2015)– Adelbert’s Brewery will release Barrel of Love, a whiskey barrel aged quadrupel, in January 2016. The beer is part of Adelbert’s Vintage Series and will be a seasonal release for Valentine’s Day. Barrel of Love will be released in kegs and bottles that will start selling to the market January 1, 2016.
Barrel of Love 2015 is an 11 percent quadrupel aged in Treaty Oak Distillery’s whiskey barrels. Brewed with dark Belgian candy syrup and Trappist yeast, the quad offers complex fruity notes of figs, raisins and plums. This Belgian style ale pairs well with aged Gouda, roasted duck, pork, bread pudding, and is perfect for a Valentine’s Day dinner.
Scott Hovey, brew master and founder of Adelbert’s Brewery, fell in love with bourbon chocolate stouts and decided to make some of his own.
“We’ve released Barrel of Love in the past, but this year’s is a different, special release for Valentine’s Day,” Hovey said. “Each year the style of Barrel of Love will shift, but it will always be aged in a barrel.”
