Double Barrel Here Be Monsters
Double Barrel Aged Imperial Stout
You’ve encountered the colossus before, but this time it emerges double-headed from the depths.
For our third iteration of Double Barrel Here Be Monsters we began with four hand-selected 13-year Elijah Craig bourbon barrels that stood out for their incredible balance of baker’s chocolate, vanillin and roast. XO Cognac (cognac having been aged a minimum of 10 years in oak) has been on our wish-list for several years and when the opportunity to receive some of incredibly high quality arose, we knew we had the perfect base. Over the next 11 months we waited patiently as the beer picked up delicate notes of orange marmalade, wildflower honey and almond croissant. We’re really excited to unveil another iteration of this beer as we continue to experiment with both common and unusual finishing barrels for our beloved flagship Imperial Stout.
