Surly Barrel-Aged Darkness, a rye whiskey barrel-aged variant of the wildly popular imperial stout looms in 2015.
Our 2015 vintage bottling of Darkness features a screeching bat-nightmare by local artist Brandon Holt. No creature is more adept at navigating in the Darkness than a bat. Emerging from a deep and ancient cave, this year’s twisted nocturnal creature has evolved a et of adaptations well suited to detecting and devouring uncommon nourishment.
Notes of chocolate, coffee, dried tart cherries, and raisins emirate from his lair. If you can evade the talons and teeth, the think body of this Russian imperial stout finishes sweet, with a piney resinous character.
Surly Barrel-Aged Darkness will most likely join Surly Darkness 2015 on the release day, October 24th, 2015.
While the brewery has mentioned the Darkness release, they have not yet announced details surrounding the barrel-aged bottle release.
Ed Note: Changed bottle size from 22oz to 750ml
