Brewed for Our Favorite Day of the Year (in a barrel)

Darkness is a beer of fable and legend. Malty and intense, yet velvety smooth. This special edition of our massive Russian imperial stout matured in Elijah Craig 12-year bourbon barrels and brings waves of chocolate, vanilla, dried fruit, and cherry, enhanced by the oaky spice of the barrel and its previous occupant.

This year’s package features original art by our 2022 Darkness Artist Eddy Wolfe.
