Imperial Brown Ale aged in first and second use Bourbon Barrels

Grand Prestige is a classic recipe from out friends at Hertog Jan in the Netherlands. We brewed this beer to their specifications here in Chicago, but we added a new depth to the flavor by barrel aging it in a combination of first and second use bourbon barrels.

With festival prices I'm more than happy to give this a fair go. Unfortunately, it suffers from that same watery body the base has, just with a bunch of bourbon thrown in. Otherwise, balance is fine, drinking is smooth. Bit boring though. Not worth it.
