For our collab with Kennel we chose to make a huge, dark and decadent imperial stout and then aged it in bourbon and rum barrels for over a year. Coming in at 13.5% this beer is incredibly dense, deep and complex with flavors of sticky bourbon, dark chocolate, licorice, coffee, molasses with coating toffee and caramel. The huge body is extremely rich and chewy. The beauty of such an intense beer is the balance between the malty sweetness and roastiness. Holding all these flavors together is an underlying savory character typical of deliciously big stouts. This beer is like concentrating a whole keg into one glass.
