About Oort Imperial Stout
Oort Imperial Stout is named after the mysterious region of our solar system that breeds comets. Massive amounts of roasted barley and Chocolate malts were combined with three types of Caramel malts for a rich, full mouthfeel. Chinook, Cascade, and Sterling hops lend a balanced bitterness and subtle hop flavor to this brew that’s as black as the vacuum of space.
About Barrel-Aged Oort Imperial Stout
This barrel aged version of the Oort Imperial Stout slumbered for fifteen months in 12-year-old bourbon barrels, imparting flavors of bitter chocolate, vanilla, and oak. It drinks especially chocolatey, with some heat from the barrel.
