Brewer's Notes

This is not a Russian Imperial Stout; it’s actually an Irish Export Stout which features dark malts, but no roasted barley and less bittering hops overall. The result is a powerful expression of malt flavors ranging from honeycomb to espresso and bittersweet cocoa. The yeast profile is lightly fruity and warming from the substantial alcohol. With a full year of maturation time in premium bourbon barrels, everything has mellowed and integrated together nicely. The bourbon (which was 6-12 years old) imparts its own characteristics of cherry fruit, toasted coconut, vanilla, and tobacco.

Behind The Name

That’s no moon… It’s a fully operational bourbon Barrel-aged imperial stout! We took our Deep Tectonic Imperial Irish Export Stout and laid it away in bourbon barrels for a full 12 months, and then nitrogenated it to create tiny cascading bubbles of creamy goodness. It’s an older beer, sir, but it checks out.
