Last November, Brewmaster Dean Jones hand filled a limited amount of premium Kentucky bourbon barrels with our Imperial Black IPA. Aged to perfection over 12 months, this very special beer is now ready for release this holiday season.
This deep, dark ale is enhanced by complex notes of toasted whiskey and bold vanilla from over a year of Kentucky bourbon barrel-aging. Its intense profile with rich caramel, roasted and black malt flavors is balanced by the subtle earthy and floral tones of East Kent Golding hops.
