Coney Island Barrel-Aged Human BlockheadAugust 21, 2012
Classified as an imperial bock, Coney Island took Human Blockhead and aged it for five months on Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels. And the result is nothing less than stellar. The beer pours a deep ruby with a thick, beige head that very slowly dissipates. Huge dried fruit notes (dates, fig) greet the nose but plum is the most prevalent. A big, bock malt bill makes this beer sweet. It has a melted caramel and cherry mouthfeel and a craisin scone-accentuated finish (with slight hints of vanilla from the barrel aging). This is fantastic. Don’t pass it up.
