Big Storm Brewing Co. (Clearwater, Florida) has officially announced that it will recognize Valentine’s Day with a Limited Bottle Release featuring Bourbon Vanilla Lie To Me Chocolate Cherry Imperial Stout on Saturday, February 8.
Returning as a barrel-aged variant in 2020 to make your Valentine’s Day extra special, this year’s batch of Lie To Me is an Imperial Stout layered with notes of dark chocolate and cherry and then aged in bourbon vanilla barrels. This added step produces an experience that “boasts smooth and decadent dark chocolate cherry and subtle vanilla notes with hints of oak and bourbon.” Coming in at a warming 9.8% ABV, the full-bodied Bourbon Vanilla Lie To Me is best enjoyed when shared “with someone you love – or someone who just really loves beer.”
Bourbon Vanilla Lie To Me will officially release at 11 a.m. on February 8 at Big Storm’s Pasco, Pinellas and Cape Coral locations. This Limited Release offering will be available as long as supplies last in 750ml bottles and on draft during this release. Big Storm will also have a limited amount of vintage bottles of 2018 and 2019 Lie To Me available for purchase during this event (quantities are limited). Bourbon Vanilla Lie To Me is a brewery-only release and is not expected to see distribution. Prost!
