A big, rich, complex stout using our Belgian yeast strain and aged in oak bourbon barrels, with a lot of body and terrific mouthfeel, along with just a hint of whiskey notes. This beer is interesting in that the style, Belgian Stout, doesnt officially exist. Our version is a big, roasty, chocolately beer with deep layers of flavor and some interesting character from our Belgian yeast strain. And to kick it up a notch, it is aged in oak bourbon barrels for 7 weeks. This beer was brewed in honor of Damien and Marias second-born son, Henry Louis Malfara, aka Hank. 8% ABV.
