Bottle Logic Brewing’s newest imperial stout release will arrive just in time for Thanksgiving.
The Anaheim-based brewery will be selling Darkstar November 2018, a 14 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with molasses and rye before being aged in bourbon barrels. Last year’s release of the imperial stout also included bottles of Red Eye November 2017, a 14.1 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with molasses and rye before being aged in bourbon barrels and conditioned on Brazilian Oberon and Sumatran beans from Mostra Coffee in San Diego, although there is no indication that will happen again this year at this time.
Darkstar November 2018 is part of Bottle Logic’s Stasis Project Series, which “celebrates the barrel as a fifth ingredient” and includes other notables such as Resplendent Angel 2018 (13.75 percent ABV), Paisley Cave Complex 2018 (13 percent ABV) and The Lost Colony 2018 (12.5 percent ABV.)
According to Bottle Logic, Darkstar November 2018 will be packaged in 500ml bottles that will go on sale via Eventbrite on Nov. 18. Purchasers can pick up their bottles starting on Nov. 20 and no proxies will be allowed.
