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.

Not sure when it was bottled but the cork said drink by May 2013. Dark brown pour with a light tan head. Nice mouthfeel despite the beer not looking thick. Malty and bourbon nose. Complex and full of malt, hops, toffee, caramel and lots of oak tannins.

From a growler. Pours dark brown almost black with a thin tan head. Tastes really good, like cool malt, nutty, light chocolate, bread, caramel, squash vegetables. Low/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like syrup, chocolate, malt, and alcohol.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2016 Bomber. Rich chocolate color. Flavor notes of chocolate, cherry, dried apricots and maybe a bit of peanut butter? The bourbon-barrel aging is fainter than you might expect, cut by the wood, which is fine. Smoothest, driest 10% imaginable. (Rated on 11/27/13)

Pours dark black with thin, grayish-brown head. Nice aromas of sweet malt, chocolate and a little bourbon. Taste is very balanced, a little dried fruit some sweetness, bourbon is nicely done. Great finish. Id have another.

SlackerMads (3341) - DENMARK - NOV 15, 2013
Dark brown close to black with a medium sized ok lasting and lacing frothy light brown head. Feels pretty light for the abv and the flavour is mellow and muted. Cocoa, dark chocolate, light chalky, wooden, light whisky notes. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Very soft on the palate, no alcohol showing.
