The featured beer for today’s Thirsty Thursday project is by Victory Brewing Company, known as the Java Cask. I’ve had almost every barrel-aged beer that Victory has produced, but the Java Cask is hands down the best barrel-aged offering I’ve had from Victory! It tastes like coffee beans making sweet music that was designed to be tasted and not heard. This stout is brewed with JB’s Coffee, so I created an image that incorporates Johnny Brenda’s restaurant, but modified the scene to show coffee beans singing to the barrels in the audience. All I can say about this 14.3% bourbon barrel-aged beauty is that it is phenomenal. If you have an opportunity to get your hands on this treat of a beer, you will find that it makes music to your tastebuds! Cheers to Victory’s barrel aging program! The Java Cask is a masterpiece of the brewing art.
