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.

Dragon Silk

This beer turned out great. I got to 9.5 ABV. Definitely a whiskey kick to it but it was smooth. Very Good.

Very excited for the beer, nervous about the bourbon addition.

I brewed it according to instructions. However, I am nervous if I let enough time pass between the brew and adding the bourbon. Smells good tho!

Still fermenting

This is my second time brewing a Dragon Silk. The 1st time it was excellent, and now one of my all-time favorites. I only dinged it 1 star because NB keeps pinging me to submit a review. It's still in primary. I'm about to transfer it to secondary, and add the bourbon oak chips. I'm sure it'll be great, and will leave a 5-star review when it's finally done.

Great stout kit

Really good kit. Tastes great at 2 weeks. Expecting it to get even better after another month of sitting in the bottle.
