Imperial Stout aged 200 days in an Elijah Craig bourbon barrel.
ONE OF THE MOST EPIC BEER TASTING EXPERIENCES YOU WILL EVER HAVE; THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU TAKE OUR TOTALITY IMPERIAL STOUT AND AGE IT IN OAK BOURBON BARRELS. THAT EXTRA STEP ADDS A PLETHORA OF FLAVORS TO THE ALREADY RICH IMPERIAL STOUT. AT FIRST TASTE THERE IS A LARGE PRESENCE OF DARK CHOCOLATE, ESPRESSO AND WARMTH FROM THE ALCOHOL OF THE BEER. OAK BARREL CHARACTER THEN COMES INTO PLAY WITH HINTS OF VANILLA AND COCONUT, FOLLOWED BY MILD BITTERNESS FROM THE HOPS, AND THEN A NICE LONG LINGERING FINISH WITH HINTS OF TOBACCO, DARK DRIED FRUIT AND MORE CHOCOLATE.
Silva Stout took a lot of patience. We aged our Double Stout in oak bourbon barrels for seventeen months. Flavors are very complex. It starts off with dark chocolate truffles rolled in cocoa powder. Next is the vanilla and wood notes, with rich cherry-like fruitiness. After racking and filtering the ale, we blended in just the right amount of freshly brewed Double Stout to provide the perfect balance of bourbon barrel aging and freshness. Enjoy the culmination of years of flavor development now – no further aging required!
The Combination of a cold Green Tea steep and a rich malt bakcbone creates a unique umami complexity in our February Brewhouse Rarities release. Rich dark chocolate and herbal accents greet the nose, giving way to a bittersweet chocolate base with strong roast earthiness and savory green tea flavors.
Our Imperial Stout is a highly anticipated release from our brewmaster's cellar. This beer was brewed in December of 2011 and was carefully aged for a year in Kentucky Bourbon casks from Maker's Mark, Four Roses, Jim Beam. This extended aging presents hints of vanilla and allows the Stout to pick up the flavors of the wood, bourbon and oak. The aging combined with the robust character of the Imperial Stout make for an extraordinary and wonderful taste experience. It has a strong roasted malt character and a full body.
An extremely rich and complex beer, the addition of raspberries during the fermentation process results in an almost purplish opaque color with a beautiful brown head. Warm chocolate and roasty notes compliment the hop bitterness.
The beer is a 100% barrel aged edition of they brewery’s Chocolate Sombrero with a couple of extra editions. Wrestle with this: the beer is chocolate imperial stout, brewed with Ancho chili powder, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. For this edition, they added extra ancho chilies and chipotle peppers. Then aged it Wild Turkey and Heaven Hill barrels.

Chocolate pepper stout brewed to 8.6% ABV, with a healthy amount of chocolate nibs and a subtle zing of white peppercorns. Cruising with Ruben & The Jets Ale was brewed in honor of the 40th Anniversary release of this Album from Frank Zappa.
Amazingly rich, seductively dark and smoking good. Yes, a real heartbreaker. We recommend only the truly skillful, heavyweight beer champions to battle this awfully addictive and overpowering smoked Stout. Careful this is the real deal with a minor Placebo effect.
Every year we age a special batch of our much-loved Russian Imperial Stout in Bourbon barrels. The depth, intensity, and complexity of the flavor profile of this special release, like its predecessors, make it a worthy tribute to Old Rasputin.
Prior to 2010, Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin was released in such limited quantities that it was available only at the North Coast Brewing retail shop in Fort Bragg, California. However, we received so many requests for this beer that we began producing enough Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin to put into broader, but still limited, distribution.
