Quest Imperial Smoking Mirror Porter marks the second barrel aged release by the Greenville, South Carolina brewery.
The base beer is a porter, that has aged 8 months in Cruzan rum barrels. Smoking Mirror Porter follows Kaldi Stout, their first barrel-aged release.
“Barrel aging is all about timing. Knowing when the beer has reached its maximum potential and fullest flavor,” says Richardson. “We let this beer age for eight months in Cruzan rum barrels and it resulted in a smooth and slightly smoky beauty, with a rich and creamy finish.”
Quest Imperial Smoking Mirror Porter will be available in 750ml bottles on Saturday, January 10th. Bottles are $20 each, with a four bottle limit.
A third barrel-aged offering is planned to release in mid to late 2015.
Style: Porter (Barrel Aged. Rum.)
Availability: 750ml bottles. $20
