Lexington Brewing & Distilling Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Imperial Milk Stout

Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co. in Kentucky announced the nationwide release of its newest barrel-aged beer, the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Imperial Milk Stout.

With notes of chocolate, roasted coffee and hints of molasses and dark roast flavors, the 100%-barrel aged Imperial Milk Stout has a beer-meets-bourbon finish at 12% alcohol by volume. This rich and bold beverage is aged in freshly decanted Kentucky bourbon barrels, which adds notes of caramel, oak and a sweet bourbon finish.

“The goal for this beer was to make something big and bold with subtle, sweet undertones,” said Brandon Martin, head brewer at Lexington Brewing & Distilling. “We wanted a beer that had all the characteristics of a big bold stout but was smooth on the palate.”

At a time where all things Kentucky bourbon and barrel-aged are in high demand, Lexington Brewing & Distilling is poised to capitalize on its unique capabilities as the only brewery and distillery on the renowned Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Imperial Milk Stout is the latest in the brewery’s award-winning portfolio of barrel-aged beers, which includes Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, the second-best selling four-pack of craft beer in the U.S., according to IRI market research data.

The addition of Lisa Wicker, former president and master distiller of Widow Jane Distillery, positions Lexington Brewing & Distilling for further growth and innovation. Wicker recently was appointed as the first CEO of Lyons Brewing & Distilling Co., the new global brand name for the Lyons family’s beverage business, which includes Lexington Brewing & Distilling and other breweries and distilleries in Kentucky and Ireland.

Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Imperial Milk Stout has a suggested retail price of $16.99 per four-pack of 12-ounce bottles.

Located in Lexington, Ky., Lexington Brewing Co. began in 1890 and was revitalized in 1999 by the late Dr. Pearse Lyons and his son Dr. Mark Lyons. It is home to Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale and Town Branch Distillery, a member of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.
