COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark Hollow blends the miracle of two crafts--brewing and distillation--to create a work greater than the sum of its parts. An Imperial Stout has been aged in charred American oak bourbon barrels still dripping with uncut whiskey. For 100 days the young beer patiently breathes in and out of the wood, gaining complexity, character, and serious attitude. This ale is always bottle conditioned and can be enjoyed immediately upon its release from the brewery...or five years later, when you dust off the last vintage bottle from your cellar to share with good company.

wchesser (1144) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Extra from someone...sorry! Translucent dark brown, minimal carbonation even with an aggressive pour. Some bourbon on the nose, oxidized malt, some burnt coffee. Taste is wet cardboard. Can’t get past it. Would suspect cork taint, but cork is composite cork, not natural. Nose is not as strongly corked as taste, but not right.

Mittenator (1277) - Michigan, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Bottle. Near black with a dark, tan head. Mild roasty malt and a little vanilla aroma. Smooth chocolate and creamy upfront but a boozy, sharp finish. A bit too carbonated for me.
