Beer Review: Wooden Cask Corruption - A Buffalo Trace Barrel-Aged Stout

The first rule of craft beer is to always start local when it comes to drinking, and I was happy and fortunate to do just this when Wooden Cask Brewing released their Buffalo Trace barrel-aged Corruption earlier this year. Wooden Cask is one of my local breweries near me and this craft beer I believe may have been one of their first barrel-aged ones. And if you followed me long enough, you know I like my barrel aged beers. But first full disclosure, I do know Randy who is the owner and he did invite me down to try the beer, and before accepting we did discuss that I would be more than happy to do so but would be honest in my assessment. I just like to always let everyone know if and when this happens with any beers that I discuss. Moving on…

The beer itself is actually their reformation which was then barrel-aged. If you didn’t see my review in that one then make sure to check it out either here on YouTube or on my website. Dark as one would imagine for a barrel aged stout, this one really left no head which isn’t as uncommon for a beer of this strength and style with a beer alcohol content of 10.2%. That is a mighty fine ABV for sure. But I don’t want to give it all away as I want you to check out my video to see my thoughts about it. However, I will tell you that this one was smooth for sure with a nice velvety feel as it worked its way down my gullet. Not any taste of the alcohol either, which made it a dangerous one. Now, it was a limited beer so I’m not sure how long or if it’s still around. But make no mistake, when they make more barrel-aged beers, I will definitely be down to try them. I am truly blessed with one craft beer market all around my area, so if you make it to Cincinnati then you will see for yourself and beer will be the least of any if your worries. As far as how this one rated for me, this barrel aged stout was an easy 4.5 out of 5. But don’t just take my word on it; check out my video to see why.

Cheers my friends, and keep drinking those good craft beers!
