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.

Bottle thanks to ksurkin: Poured a deep thick black with a finger to two finger light brown head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, light vanilla, and malts. Taste is boozy bourbon, sweet dark chocolate, edgy smoke, and loads of malts.

Smooth, this beer has echoes of a heavier, maltier beer than what it really is. It’s addictive in the fact that it’s so easy drinking and unoffensive to the point that you just can’t stop drinking it. It’s grainy, bleeding with bourbon flavors, and I honestly think that the feel of this beer is made up more of its barrel aging effects that it seems like a heavier beer than it is. Not so heavy on roasted malts, it’s very easy to drink and still complex enough to impress your socks off. Modest, but awesome.

Bottle. Pours black with dissipating khaki head. Aroma is bourbon and chocolate. Flavor is dominated by the same. Coffee note does make an appearance though. Not bad but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Wegmans Sterling - cork says best buy mar 2013’ which is weird for a style that ages well - pours pitch with several fingers of head. Aroma has nice whiskey notes which don’t become overwhelming when it warms, has vanilla from the oak, and has a nice subtle malted chocolate base. Taste is sweet with the alcohol present, but acts as a nice understated warm mouth feel, which is surprising for a 10% ABV brew. Overall, very nice! I’m excited to see what else they produce.

750 ml bottle to oversized snifter (thanks mikem409). Looks good; black with light beige lacing. Smells solid; malty, roasty, and boozy. Tastes like it smells with a nice mouthfeel. Good beer.

Bottle. Pours a thick and black with a small off-white head. Nose has a strong bourbon note with some underlying roasting. Taste is much the same. Decent, but I find that the bourbon overwhelms the beer.

deyholla (8124) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle thanks to Andy! Pours black with a grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a strong roasted malt note with some bitter chocolate a hint of coffee and a bourbon backing. Flavor starts with dark grains that grow in roasted malts and has a boozy bourbon finish.
