2021 CONCEALED DARKNESS

THE MYSTERY OF GREAT BEER challenges the spirit of adventure in all who seek a higher level to this ancient brew. Dark Hollow blends the miracle of two crafts—brewing and distillation—to create a work greater than the sum of its parts.

Our once-a-year Reserve edition of this hallowed imperial stout has been aged in barrels from Buffalo Trace Distillery for a full year, changing and mellowing with the roll of the seasons.

Enjoy the best of  2021: Dark Hollow brewed with double the roast barley, double the chocolate malt, and double the oats, and then concealed in the darkness at the back of the barrel room, waiting to emerge on December 4th.

VARIANT #2
PISTACHIO CREAM

Now entice your senses with our 7th annual Variant Series from Concealed Darkness. Variant #2 was aged solely in Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels, and dosed with natural pistachio flavoring and cream flavoring throughout its year-long slumber at the back of our barrel-aging cellar. 

 

Pistachio and cream are a beautiful pairing on their own, but opening up these flavor notes to the substantial depth and strength of our reserve Imperial Stout brings something unexpected and delightful to the simple dessert-beer experience.  Enjoy this limited edition take on the best of 2021.

VARIANT #1
CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRY

Now entice your senses with our 7th annual Variant Series from Concealed Darkness. Variant #1 was aged solely in bourbon barrels from the Buffalo Trace Distillery, with the addition of cacao nibs and strawberry purée.

 

The natural pairing of raw chocolate and ripe and vibrant strawberry flavors plays with the deep malt, oak and natural vanilla flavors from the beer and the barrel. Enjoy this limited edition take on the best of 2021.
