“Inspired by the classics,” J. Wakefield (Miami, Florida) has teamed up with frequent collaborator LifeXLLAB to brew their new stout, Future Sounds Classic.
An homage to the classic stouts of old, Future Classic Sounds shies away from the decadence of the pastry stout. Instead, it gets its flavor profile from the time it spends in the barrel.
At 13% ABV, this stout had a hefty base even before it is put in the barrels. Once transferred into the Grape Brandy and Bourbon Barrels from J. Wakefield, Future Classic Sounds really begins to harness the flavors of the wood.
Available in both “the classic” version and another aged on Tahitian Vanilla, Future Classic Sounds can be picked up either at either the brewer’s Tap Room or at the Web Shop.
