This robust version of our black ale features a smooth, chocolatey, semi-roasted malt profile that sweetly balances out the doubled strength. Notes of oak and whiskey from an extended aging period in Bourbon barrels creates a welcoming warmth. This iteration of our Double Black Ale features a "Double Shot" of both Cold-Press coffee and whole bean Vanilla for an extra level of flavor complexity and is the perfect companion for a late night viewing of the Northern Lights ... or can accompany any natural wonder you may come across.
