Nine months ago we laid our award-winning Imperial Stout base to rest in some freshly emptied Blantons, Old Fitzgerald, Old Forrester, and Rare Breed bourbon barrels. We took a classical Imperial Stout recipe & subbed in some de-bitered black malt, chocolate malt, & pale chocolate malt for a more chocolate-forward base beer. The Stout isn’t a big, chewy, adjunct laden beer, but instead, a solid foundation to build upon and showcase different brewing processes, adjuncts, additions, and barreling techniques. The 2021 version of The Stout a bourbon barrel forward Imperial Stout made to drink now for incredible bourbon character, or lay down to age for your vertical tasting down the line.
