A perennial fan favorite from Smuttynose Brewing Co.’s innovation center, Smuttlabs, is being released again today.

The beer in question is The Stallion, an 11.1 percent ABV imperial stout aged in Opus One red wine barrels. The stout debuted as a draft-only option by the Hampton, N.H.-based brewery in 2014 before being bottled for the first time in 2015 and released again in February last year.


The Smuttlabs program is a way for the brewers at the brewery to experiment and innovate with beers on a much smaller scale.

According to a post on the Smuttynose Brewing Facebook page, The Stallion is once again packaged in 500ml bottles and is being released exclusively at the brewery today.
