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.

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle, 75cl corked. A clear looking next to black beer with a finger-thick, dense, light tan head. There’s a light boozy touch in the aroma, with roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. A bit one dimensional perhaps, but still nice. Croquant notes and some licorice hints. It’s full-bodied, yet feeling a bit thin, with a nice carbonation level and alcohol warmth. Bourbon, vanilla, coffee, dark sugars, dark chocolate and a little sweetness, with caramel sauce. Lasting finish. Sure a nice one, although not my preferred imp stout. Sort of boring, in a strange way. 140808

Travlr (12253) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle. I guess batch 5, label says 10%, cork says Best by Mar 2013. Weird. Black color, large thick brown head. Aroma of licorice, coffee, vanilla. Taste is big and slightly boozy, although the whiskey is subtle. Just lots of coffee, dark cocoa, vanilla. Good stuff.
