Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Bierman9 on 11-02-2007

Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout. 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.

Pours black with thin layer of tan head. Smell is slightly sweet with a overtones of bourbon. Lots of small bubbles that add to the nice mouthfeel mixing carbonation with a spicy thick feel of a stout with oaky taste accented with coffee. Overall very enjoyable but maybe slightly more "fizziness" in the carbonation.

The 10% abv is nice, hits the money-spot for abv. Its a good $10 bomber for sure. Not world class, but solid, plus classy bottling. They should do more specialized versions of this brew (vanilla, chili....vanilla....vanilla.)
