Barrel-Aged Darkest Hour

Seasonal
Texas, United States
11% ABV • IBU 60

Rising for winter solstice, the darkest and shortest day in the northern hemisphere, this imperial stout is a fitting tribute. Darkest Hour is brewed with an abundance of roasted malts for rich malt sweetness. Deep Ellum uses firm resinous hops and dark candi syrup to make it uniquely rustic then conditioned in bourbon barrels and freshly charred new american oak barrels. The result is fruity bittersweet with flavors of toffee, cocoa and dark berry refined by the newness of oak.
