Barrel-Aged Imperial Chocolate Cherry Stout  ·  10.5% ABV  ·  45.0 IBU

Shakedown Imperial Chocolate Cherry Stout is a full-bodied imperial stout with cherries and dark chocolate blended into the beer during fermentation. Aged in bourbon barrels for several months, it acquired vanilla and toasted coconut notes. Aromas of bittersweet chocolate and subtle fruit delight the senses. Tartness from the cherries balances the smooth cocoa sweetness. Malty, chocolate and dark fruit flavors create a rich and complex beer that is meant to be savored slowly.
