In Beer, Craft Beer, Launch, MILF

A note from our brewmaster: MILF 2014!

In all of our wisdom we thought it would be fun to make a raisin, chocolate imperial stout blended from a variety of bourbon, brandy, sherry, rum and whiskey barrels.  And it was.  Tasting each barrel, tasting the ten to fifteen blends we came up with was not only fun but a tremendous learning experience, both in the nature of barrel aging beers and in blending barrel aged beer.  We started last years MILF with 50 barrels of beer.  (A barrel is 31 US gallons.)  We ended up deciding on a blend that yielded us about 37 barrels.  The remaining 13 barrels were re-barreled for this next version and beyond.  Many of the spirit barrels that contained MILF last year were refilled immediately.  New batches of MILF were brewed and new spirit barrels sourced and brought in and filled.  Through the year we have tasted and checked the development of flavors as the beer ages.  What has become crystal clear is that it would be folly to attempt to recreate the exact same beer that we released last year, and to a certain extent not in keeping with the spirit (no pun intended) of these types of beers.  Instead we are committed to releasing the best blend we have in house while maintaining the essential character- a big, smooth, complex raisin chocolate imperial stout.  One year the blend may showcase more rum, maybe the next would be more whiskey, or maybe more chocolate.  We are confident that the finished blend will be super tasty, complex, and worthy of drinking now or aging for a bit in a cool dark place.
Cheers!
