VELVET | Bourbon Barrel-Aged Porter
Rich / Smooth / Bourbon
Since way back when we’ve gazed up at it, seeking meaning in its velvet depths, assigning myths to its constellations which we follow as calendar & compass. We wish upon its shooting stars, dream of life on distant planets, & interpret its comets as heralds of impending change or doom. Who knows what it all really means, but we can raise a glass of this full-bodied Porter – with its rich malty aroma & hint of Bourbon – to the profound possibility of the night sky.
