Cool autumn nights call for this whiskey barrel-aged imperial porter—and maybe a cigar, too. Catoctin Creek whiskey barrels that later housed maple syrup cradled this 9.99%-ABV dark-hued brew for six months, imparting a full whiskey and milk chocolate aroma. Dark chocolate and soft roast spread into rich leathery tones on the tongue; smoky, woody wisps adorn the silky sip. This small-batch release is just one of three barrel-aged variations of the Purcellville, Va., brewery’s Blvck Celebration Baltic porter; there are also rum- and plain whiskey-aged iterations. Find them in Adroit Theory’s taproom or on its website, or call to have them delivered to a Virginia address—one with a leather wingback chair and a box of Cubans, of course.
