Diageo’s Guinness Open Gate Brewery in Baltimore has announced the second release of its barrel-aged beer Guinness Stock Ale Aged in Bulleit Bourbon Barrels.

The brewery was officially opened last year. It produces barrel-aged beers, IPAs, sours and stouts.

Guinness Open Gate Brewery in Baltimore senior brewer Sean Brennan said: “One of the really cool things about brewing a stock ale is that you actually get to brew two completely separate beers with unique traits and their own identities and then blend them together to create a beer that takes on some of both but also has a life of its own.

“When you consider all of the flavours coming from the wood of the barrels, thanks to Bulleit’s subtle spice and oaky richness, there is a lot of powerful influences to take note of and process in the final beer. As we say, it is one to sip.”

With 10% alcohol by volume (ABV), Guinness Stock Ale is a combination of Guinness Barley wine and a Guinness Imperial Stout, which were aged in Bulleit Bourbon barrels before being blended.

The brewery noted that its stock ale offers aromas of vanilla, coffee, stone fruit and ripe berries and has notes of nutty chocolate, raisins, roasted barley and sweet dark fruit.

Guinness Stock Ale Aged in Bulleit Bourbon Barrels is available on tap at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery in Baltimore.

It will be released at beer outlets across the US on 15 November.

Available in a pack of four 11.2oz bottles, the limited-edition beer will retail for a suggested price of $19.99.
