This is a beer we have all been working on for a long time here at Black Diamond. It has been over a year in the making and now that it is done, we are very happy with how it turned out. It is complex and balanced with flavors from Belgian candi syrups, dark fruits, roasted malts, Bourbon barrels, and alcohol warmth. We aged a Belgian style dark ale in 30 used Bourbon barrels for a year. We added 300 lbs. of fruit (black currants and figs) and 600 hand-cut vanilla beans. We brewed a total of 10 batches on our 15-Barrel brewhouse (some aged, some fresh) and blended it all together. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
