Fans looking forward to one of Alesmith Brewing Co.’s most anticipated releases of the year will have to wait a bit longer to purchase it.

In a post on its Facebook page, the San Diego, Calif.-based brewery has announced that it is delaying the release of Double Barrel Speedway Stout, a 13 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with coffee that has been aged in both bourbon barrels and Portuguese port barrels for an “extended aging period.”

“We anticipated having Double Barrel Speedway Stout ready for our fans in time for our 22nd Anniversary Party,” reads a post on Alesmith’s Facebook page. “However, we’ve decided it needs a few more strokes to go from great to masterpiece. So we’ve pushed back the release date to give this blend some extra time in the barrel to reach peak complexity.”

The stout was originally scheduled to go on sale on Aug. 14 as part of Alesmith’s 22nd anniversary celebration. Bottles were priced at $35 each and there was a purchase limit of two bottles per person, with no proxies allowed. An email sent to the brewery for additional information on a new release date was not immediately returned.
