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.

Dragon's Silk...crowd pleaser!

This is the second 10 gallon batch I have made in the past 6 months. This has become one of mine and my wife's favorite. As the beer matured over the first 2-3 months, it became more creamy, mellower, richer with more chocolate and oak coming through. Our only thought on improvement for our taste is we wished the bourbon came through more. So this time around, I have added a few shots of bourbon along with the soaked oak chips to the secondary process. We are excited to taste this beer in a few more weeks when we keg it!

I brewed this about a year ago and it was exceptional so I have brewed it again. I hit 1.12 OG and just transferred it to the Catalyst. I am going to barrel-age it for a year for a special occasion. Looking forward to it (if I can wait that long)!

Fun to brew easy enough to follow recipe. It's still in the fermenter so I can't say how it tastes yet

Used less bourbon as per previous review's recommendation. CO2 pushed out of fermentasaurus into corny after extended time on yeast cake, then force carbonated.
