Oskar Blues Brewery will release 7th Flag Barrel-aged Imperial Porter at all four of their taproom locations on March 28. Crafted and barrel-aged in collaboration with Garrison Brothers Distillery, this big, bodacious imperial porter is the first specialty canned offering ever brewed by and released from the Oskar Blues Austin location. 7th Flag will be available on draft and in 4-packs of 12 oz. cans for a very limited time.
7th Flag Barrel-aged Imperial Porter (10.3% ABV) is a barrel-aged Texas behemoth. Brewed with Two Row, Munich, and Chocolate malt, with small additions of Premium English Caramalt and Brown malt, the beer has a dark, full-bodied mouthfeel with a sweet molasses finish. Oskar Blues brewers hand-selected Garrison Brothers bourbon whiskey barrels directly from their distillery, then tucked away the beer for a full year of aging. 7th Flag offers a slightly charred flavor with notes of warm vanilla, chocolate and cola, as well as plum, dark cherry and pie crust.
Named for a 7th flag which once flew over Texas, this beer is an homage to rebellious Texan roots, as Oskar Blues Brewery celebrates its fifth year calling Austin home, and their new ability to sell beer to-go. The location was unable to sell beer to-go from their taproom before a legal ruling earlier this year cleared the way, making 7th Flag the first specialty canned beer to be released at all four Oskar Blues Brewery locations.
