The name for this beer is a reference to the unique and delicious Vin Jaune wines of the Jura region in France. It started life as Belgian-style tripel, and after two years of maturation in dry sherry barriques it emerged as a light amber colored beer with strong oxidative notes of almond, hazelnut, and oak.
This beer is as hairy as a Siberian... or as a panther. And you better believe it because it gets the black magic from mountains of roasted malts and dark candi syrup. During the long weeks in the fermentor it gathers its rage... a rage this mythical beast of imperial stout wants to unleash on your taste buds.
Happy birthday to us! To celebrate our first year as a brewery we brewed a serious imperial stout and aged it on cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, and fresh habanero peppers. This is the first offering in our annual Anniversary series. Here’s to many more!
