Breckenridge Brewery expands its barrel-aged offerings with the nation-wide release of Barrel Aged 72 Imperial in 22oz bottles. For the first time, the Colorado brewery will package one of its specialty barrel-aged beers in large format and ship it to all 37 states that it distributes in.
This unique release is a whiskey barrel-aged take on the brewery’s Small Batch 72 Imperial
, an imperial chocolate cream stout. For every 100 bbl. batch, 400 lbs. of Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory
lustrous chocolate, made especially for 72 Imperial, are added to the brew. After spending a considerable amount of time in whiskey-soaked oak barrels, the finished product is molasses in color
and smells of chocolate, wood, and whiskey harmoniously blended together
. The beer has a dense and decadent mouthfeel
and an abundance of rich flavors, including hints of sherry
and dark fruit
that compliment the toasted chocolate and oak notes

Thanksgiving is one of the best times of year. There's the reunion of families and friends getting together, reminding each other of old memories, and creating new ones. Then there's the over-indulging in delicious, home-cooked food. Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday season. For us, it marks that festive time of year when we get to enjoy one of the brewery's longest standing traditions, Christmas Ale.
