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.

Travlr (21169) - 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.

Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2012
Keg at The Pony Bar UES, NYC. Pours clear, rich brown with a fine, light tan cream head. Nose holds lots of rich brown bread and milk chocolate. Medium to big sweet flavor with sugary chocolate, light roast, very faint earth, brown sugar, light toffee, toasty malts and very light alcohol. Full bodied with average carbonation and a chewy mouthfeel. Very mellow warmth on the finish with lots of dark sugars, dark bread, milk chocolate, caramel, faint vanilla and mild bitter earth. Not bad.

Draught at Ginger Man, NYC. Very dark brown beer with a nice brownish head. Malty vanilla aroma, whisky, cream, figs, plums, smoked notes, peat, toffee, caramel, hoppy notes but most of all this is about pretty much anything you can ask for in the malty area. Malty vanilla flavor, whisky, cream, smoked, fogs, plums, well hidden alcohol, spicy hoppy notes, milky, grapes, pear, roasted, oak notes, some apricot. Malty vanilla and chocolate aroma, hay, pear, oak, whisky and some plum. Just plain wonderful!

Theydon_Bois (16635) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle split at Endo’s house, thanks to James (jtclockwork) for the trade, 26/05/13. Light black with a thin tan head. Nose is dark malt, chocolate, bourbon notes, dark fruits, woody tones, touch of booze. Taste comprises dark sugars, dark malts, light roast, chocolate, bourbon, molasses, toffee fudge. Full bodied, fine carbonation, booze and sugars quite evident in the finish. Ok stuff if a little over sweet but the bourbon is kept in check pretty well and doesn’t take over the beer.
