No. 3, Black Tot, a Rum Barrel Aged Imperial Oatmeal Stout, will be bottled in mid-January 2010, and we plan to release the beer from our Tap Room on January 15th, 2010. We saved some of original Imperial Oatmeal Stout (completely un-oaked and REALLY delicious as is) and also filled a single bourbon barrel and a rye barrel with the same stout. While we’ll only be bottling and releasing the rum barrel aged version, we’ll have all four versions on tap at the release on 1/15! Buy your plane ticket now!
From the label: “Swabbies, what could be better than your daily rats ‘o thick, chewy and robust Imperial Oatmeal Stout? What say you, matey’s? Aye, throw it in yer beloved empty rum barrels for aging! To our sweethearts and wives, may they never meet! Huzzah!”
Make sure you look at the upcoming press release to see which markets we’ll be releasing this beer in. That decision hasn’t been made just yet.
