About this Event

2020 CONCEALED DARKNESS: DARK HOLLOW RESERVE

THE MYSTERY OF GREAT BEER challenges the spirit of adventure in all who seek a higher level to this ancient brew. Dark Hollow blends the miracle of two crafts—brewing and distillation—to create a work greater than the sum of its parts.

Our once-a-year Reserve edition of this hallowed imperial stout has been aged in barrels from Buffalo Trace Distillery for a full year, changing and mellowing with the roll of the seasons.

Enjoy the best of 2020: Dark Hollow brewed with double the roast barley, double the chocolate malt, and double the oats, and then concealed in the darkness at the back of the barrel room, waiting to emerge on December 5th.

2020 CONCEALED DARKNESS WILL BE ON TAP ALL DAY INSIDE THE BARREL HOUSE TASTING ROOM (and bottles will be for sale while supplies last!

We will also be featuring the release of THREE new exciting variants:

2020 VARIANT #1: CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT

Variant #1 was aged solely in bourbon barrels from Heaven Hill Distillery, with the addition of cacao nibs soaked in a natural hazelnut flavoring. The natural pairing of raw chocolate and nut flavors--the hazelnut being the acme of this marriage--plays with the deep chocolate malt, oak, and natural vanilla flavors from the beer and the barrel.

2020 VARIANT #2: ORANGE CREAM

Variant #2 was aged solely in Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels and dosed with natural orange citrus and cream flavorings throughout its year-long slumber at the back of our barrel-aging cellar. Orange and cream are a classic fit, but opening up these flavor notes to the substantial depth and strength of our reserve Imperial Stout brings something unexpected and wonderful to the normally simple "creamsicle" experience.

VARIANT #3: MAPLE GRAHAM

Variant #3 was aged solely in Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels and given a special winter kick from the extreme Northeast with Vermont Grade A Organic Dark Amber Maple syrup and graham cracker flavoring. If the crackle of a fire on a cold night in deep woods could be turned into a drink, it would taste like this.
