The newest incarnation of Ozark Beer Co.’s most popular creation is being released tomorrow.
That beer is Bourbon Double Cream Stout 2018—or BDCS, as it is commonly known in the craft beer community—a 10.3 percent ABV imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels. First brewed in 2014 and debuting in 12-ounce cans in 2015, the stout is fermented in steel tanks before being aged for “several months” in bourbon barrels that each held Kentucky bourbon for between 6-12 years.
According to a post on Ozark’s website, BDCS 2018 will be packaged in four-packs of 12-ounce cans ($19.99) and will have a three four-pack per person purchase limit when it goes on sale at the brewery on May 12. In addition, the stout will see “limited distribution” throughout Arkansas starting the week of May 14.
