Madness & Reason #12
Imperial Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels
Nearly seven years ago, we brewed a beer in honor of batch 1,000—a 33º American-style sweet imperial stout. That base beer then spent more than two years in Bourbon barrels from two of our favorite distilleries. A small portion of that beer made its way to kegs and was stored in anticipation of our tenth anniversary year. Now, after an additional four years of cold conditioning, the moment arrives when we might offer this singular instance of beer, the twelfth in our ongoing series of experimental dark ales, Madness & Reason.
