Tomorrow night, December 6, ChurchKey will be putting on the highly rated and sought after Black Note Stout from Bell’s Brewing. This is an amazingly complex beer that rarely sees tap lines outside of the brewpub in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and is scarce even there.
Black Note is a blend of Expedition Stout and Special Double Cream Stout that have both been aging since 2010 in Old Forester Bourbon Barrels.
Here is what Bell’s has to say about Black Note:
“One of the most sought-after stouts in Bell’s history, Black Note Stout blends the complex aromatics of Expedition Stout with the velvety smooth texture of Double Cream Stout and ages the combination in freshly retired oak bourbon barrels for months. The resulting harmony of flavors captures the finest features of all three components: malty notes of dark chocolate, espresso and dried fruits, all buoyed by the warmth and fragrance of the bourbon barrel. Aimed squarely at the stout and bourbon aficionados, Black Note makes a grand statement about the art of the dark.”
There is no admission for this event and the Black Note will be priced individually in 4 oz. tasting pours and by the glass… tapping happens at 6 PM sharp!
