This dark, hearty ale was brewed during our annual Barrel Brew at our Montgomeryville store on October 29, 2011 and fermented on site for a month in Bourbon barrels. Our version clocks in at 7.5% ABV, and is flavored with heather tips and just a touch of our unique applewood smoked malt to add a subtle complexity to an already incredibly rich malt bill.
