I call this Life Happens Oak Whiskey Stout. In 2020, I filled a pint jar with French oak chips and topped it off with Buffalo Trace whiskey. My plan was to use it in 4-6 weeks. Well, my brew partner moved away and I took a little break from brewing. During the summer of 2022 I brewed a stout at 9% and tossed in the chips (small amount of liquid whiskey) about a month later. If you like oak forward flavors this is something to try. The oak is strong but not overly bitter. I need to hold back a few bottles to try in a year or so.
