Product details

Beware the dragon that lurks in the inky shadows of this potent ale. On the surface, Dragon's Silk Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout exhibits a facade of chocolate, coffee, and approachable roast. But as you delve deeper into the lair you will discover a tremendous hoard of sweet bourbon, rich oak, and smooth notes of opulent vanilla.

Brewing this recipe kit is much easier than slaying any dragon, thanks to an abundance of premium ingredients and brewmaster know-how. But the complexity of the finished ale is as layered and captivating as any quest. We urge you to face off with a pint of this commanding ale and savor your victory.

Ride the Dragon

This is a fantastic faux BBA beer. Following this recipe is far easier and cheaper than tracking down your own barrels. It lacks a little bit of the thickness you get out of a true barrel aged beer, but that's a small price to pay. Like its name suggests, this beer was smooth as silk, delicious and packed a punch.

Great advice on Dragon Silk!

I appreciated the fast and thorough response from you regarding my slow fermentation- patience is the key. Even if the primary takes 6 weeks, it will be worth the wait!

I have not brewed this batch yet. I have scheduled it for later this week. If it turns out as well as the last one I will be a happy camper/brewer!
