Around here, the only thing that gets any sleep is our barrel aged series.
Each year, we handpick a few select creations
to hibernate in various barrels that we collect from friends and family.
For this creation, our robust Maple Russian Imperial stout was made with
100% maple sap secretly combined with copious amounts of oats and aged in
Smuggler’s Notch Bourbon Barrels for 8 months.
It’s not only the first legal 18.2% beer in Vermont, but it’s also the only
true 100% Vermont beer by definition, made with nothing but native Green Mountain ingredients.

It’s deep black stout appearance provides a hefty base
to hints of cherry and molasses and bourbon notes.
