Darkest Hour

Brewed to mark the winter solstice, the darkest and shortest day in the northern hemisphere, our imperial stout is a fitting tribute. We mash enough grain to overflow our oversized mash/lauter tun, augment it with raw cane sugar and belgian-style dark candi syrup, balance it with abundant, tasty hops and then feed the resulting wort to our favorite ale yeast. It is conditioned twice as long as our regular offerings to let the huge flavors marry.
