This is the Snobby Beer review of Bourbon Barrel Aged Plead the 5th from Dark Horse Brewing Company in Marshall, Michigan. This beer is a special release and not part of their normal seasonal lineup, and I was fortunate enough to be able to share this beer with Darren Link from Brewtensils, a home brew shop that is part of Belmont Party Supply. You may have seen the written review of the normal Plead The 5th that I posted a little while ago. I also posted a video of when I received this beer in a trade.
How does this beer measure up to other Bourbon Barrel stouts? How does it compare to regular Plead the Fifth?
From the Dark Horse website (about regular Plead the 5th):
“Plead the 5th Imperial Stout
It’s big and full bodied with lots of roasted malts and blanced with heavy hops to put this imperial in a league of its own.”
