So as I have started to love barrel-aged beers, but refuse to pay the crazy prices, I am so dumb I finally came up with the idea of pouring a little whiskey in my beer. Bought a coffee stout for $3.99, poured a little nice bourbon in it, and viola…pretty decent replica of a barrel-aged beer. Only $3.99! Yes, the taste was close enough to ever pay $20 for a bottle again.
