Beer Descriptions:
 
Enlightened Despot – 2017
Bourbon Barrel Russian Imperial Stout
Aged in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels
11.3% ABV, 78 IBU
The Despot Doth Come
 
4 Bottle Limit
 
The Enlightened Despot is an amazingly rich, complex and surprisingly drinkable Bourbon Barrel Russian Imperial Stout. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, and of course the delicious hints of Bourbon round out this robust stout. The 2017 version was aged for 8 months in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. Made with 10 specialty grains and containing over 78 IBU of American Hop flavor, this truly is a one of a kind beer.
 
Beer Advocate rates the Enlightened Despot a 94 saying, “The beer geeks love their Imperial Stouts, and a small handful garner enough hype to draw massive crowds around their release. This one is just as deserving as the next. A sweet malt bomb with roasted grain and alcohol is not all that is going on here; there’s also layers of chocolate and coffee met by alcohol warmth. Something to savor.”

Lickinghole Creek’s Great Commander has been named the Top Beer in Virginia at RateBeer Best, the world’s largest and most prestigious commercial beer competition.

Santa Rosa, California – January 30, 2017 – Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery (LCCB), Virginia’s Farm Brewery, is located on a 290 acre farm in scenic Goochland County, Virginia.  LCCB’s name comes from  Little Lickinghole Creek, which runs through the farm the brewery is on.  Founded in 2013.  Family owned and operated.  LCCB has won a silver medal at both the Great American Beer Festival (Heir Apparent, 2015) and the World Beer Cup (Coconut Delight, 2016).

Great Commander is a Rum Barrel Aged Imperial Stout spiced with cocoa, vanilla, cinnamon, New Mexican Ancho Chiles and Serrano Peppers.  Flavors of chocolate, rum and vanilla meld together seamlessly with the perfect amount of spice and heat.

Beer Descriptions:
 
Enlightened Despot – 2017
Bourbon Barrel Russian Imperial Stout
Aged in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels
11.3% ABV, 78 IBU
The Despot Doth Come
 
4 Bottle Limit
 
The Enlightened Despot is an amazingly rich, complex and surprisingly drinkable Bourbon Barrel Russian Imperial Stout. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, and of course the delicious hints of Bourbon round out this robust stout. The 2017 version was aged for 8 months in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. Made with 10 specialty grains and containing over 78 IBU of American Hop flavor, this truly is a one of a kind beer.
 
Beer Advocate rates the Enlightened Despot a 94 saying, “The beer geeks love their Imperial Stouts, and a small handful garner enough hype to draw massive crowds around their release. This one is just as deserving as the next. A sweet malt bomb with roasted grain and alcohol is not all that is going on here; there’s also layers of chocolate and coffee met by alcohol warmth. Something to savor.”
