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.

Looking for the All Grain Version?
Haven't brewed this one yet but this is the 3rd or 4th time I've ordered it.
Still in secondary fermenting! Hope it comes out amazing like all the other beer kits from here
I had an issue with my siphon when I was transferring the wort to the secondary fermenter (the seal wasn't good and so it was aerating the wort). Gave a little bit of a funky first taste that seems to be going away as the beer sits in bottles. I think the charred oak and the bourbon give the beer a real bourbon barrel taste. It's pretty good stuff but you have to be patient and let it sit for a while.
Great taste and easy to make
My favorite stouts - Brunch Stout, Imperial Stout, and Alpha Leonis. Stouts like these sale for $9 for a 22oz bottle at the market.
