Imperial porter brewed with maple syrup aged in bourbon barrels
Black Maple was a beer we brewed on the fly. An open brew day was reason enough to go big and bold. We put our heads together and crafted an imperial porter with deep nutty notes, a touch of smoked malt, a melange of crystal malts, and a rich chocolate backbone.
Locally harvested maple syrup from Sticky Pete’s was added to the kettle. The whole batch was then placed into bourbon barrels wehre it rested for 10 months. This beer was consistently some of our favorite barrels to sample, we hope you enjoy!
