Monday Night Darker Subject Matter – a summer thriller

Monday Night Darker Subject Matter Can

Monday Night Darker Subject Matter,  a bourbon-barrel-aged edition of the brewery’s Dark Subject Matter, debuts today.

Back in March of this year, in a sea of pastry stout releases all over the United States in the dead of winter, the Atlanta based brewery bucked the national trend a bit. A big, rich, completely adjunct-free imperial stout known as Dark Subject Matter emerged. It was absolutely perfect winter beer – chocolatey, fudgy, thick as hell and silky smooth.

Debuting today (and less perfect for the summer heat) is the barrel-aged version of this imperial stout – Darker Subject Matter. This 13.5% alcohol by volume imperial stout with a murdery vibe is every damn bit that big beer we fell in love with in the winter, now with an oaky, vanilla bourbon overtone. The side of the can says HEAVIER THICKER OAK. Monday Night means it.

Go ahead and slam this beast by the pool or at the beach and definitely on an empty stomach after running a few miles. It’s always good to remind yourself that your bad decisions aren’t always behind you.

Either way, Monday Night Darker Subject Matter is a real treat, hot weather or no hot weather. Available at the brewery starting at 4 pm today in 16-ounce cans and draft.

Style: Imperial Stout (Barrel-Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Limited Release.
Debut: 7/26/19

13.5% ABV
