Vibrant Forest Brewery
Untappd Rating: 4.21
A beer three years in the making, an effort of patience and craft. High Elan is the product of a single barrel of Black Oktober Imperial stout, aged for three years in 1st use Bourbon barrels. The barrel has added oak and vanilla characteristics, and the sands of time have rounded this off with a complex smoothness, that takes its constituent parts and renders a perfectly balanced broth. Onto this venerable liquid we added fresh cherries, to further enhance the quality of its native sweetness, and to add further layers to this complex and respectable beer.
