Dreams of a Distant Past

13.85% Ale

When originally developing our imperial stouts, they were inspired by the opening of Bartok Concerto for Orchestra and that feeling of mystery and time. Beers like Hair of the Dog Adam came to mind, and our stouts are built on a core loosely based on that beer with additional roasted malts to make it a stout. We never brewed the core beer alone until 2 years ago. We put the beer into bourbon, rye whiskey, and Cognac barrels, and blended them for this special ale aged in assorted barrels for an ideal amount of time. Rich but dry with prominent barrel character and flavors of caramel, leather, dried fruit, chocolate, spicy wood, and light smoke.
