BA 17 is the barrel-aged version of our imperial mint chocolate stout. It's a blend of select barrels of our imperial stout, which have been aging in Rittenhouse Rye Barrels for more than a year before being infused with cocoa nibs, dried peppermint, and Madagascar vanilla beans. Rich fudge and brownie batter flavors meld with layers of caramel and oak vanillin, all brightened by a measured wave of cooling mint. On the finish there's a subtle hint of maple and dried tobacco. BA 17 is a decadent dessert in its own right and also pairs wonderfully with ice cream.
