More from a press release:

In making MASSIVE! Scotch Barrel Aged we used only British Golden Promise malt and boiled for eight hours, giving the beer a deep ruby  color and rich malt flavor. We then aged MASSIVE! in Macallan Scotch  barrels for almost 2 years. Enjoy the richness and intensity now, or  after years and year and years more of aging.

This is a very limited run, and there are only 30 cases of MASSIVE!  Scotch Barrel Aged. We will have bottles for sale and a very limited  amount available for draft pours at Gigantic that day.

We also still have a limited number of cases of older vintages of MASSIVE! Bourbon Barrel Aged, including 2016, 2017 and 2018. Allowing  people to build their own vertical tasting of MASSIVE! As a special promotion for this release we are giving a one day only 20% discount when you build your own vertical tasting and purchase a 4 pack of MASSIVE! bottles.
