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.

Pours pitch black with a small but lacy tab head. Bourbon is in the forefront, but lots of vanilla comes out. Thick creamy mouthfeel. Sweet with some cocoa powder and a good degree of bourbon. Strong and flavorful. Nice clean but rich fade. Well done for a bourbon beer.

Bottle. Black pour, thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, coffee, chocolate and caramel. Flavor is quite bitter, smooth, coffee and oak. Very well balanced.

Bottle. This is a big ol beast of a stout with a lot going on in the background. Nice and roasted with good bourbon balance.

GenDV138 (7702) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 14, 2016
5 oz pour on draft at Barrel & Bushel, Tysons Corner Center. Dark brownish black with tan head. Aromas mainly of big dark and milk chocolates. Tastes of big dark and milk chocolate, roast, light booze. Medium-full body with a dry finish. Better than I remember it being when I first had it a few years ago.

Strong bourbon aroma that carries strongly into the body a hint of coca in the malt.

Sammy (12762) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2015
aged for a few years. Well made, it was getting into a rich vintage taste with the bourbon (and a modest amount of sour from the bourbon), and coconut from the wood. Medium mouthfeel. Dark and still some head. Drinkable, but a sipper.
