A new release coming next month from The Bruery is a barrel-aged version of a collaboration with Oceanside, Calif.-based Horus Aged Ales.
Churriosity is a 14.2 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with dulce de leche and lactose before being aged in both bourbon and cinnamon whiskey barrels for 10 months with cinnamon added. A non-barrel-aged version of the stout was released late last year, but that version was a draft-only option and came in at a lower 10.4 percent ABV.
In an email, Kyle Harrop, owner of Horus Aged Ales, told Tenemu that Churriosity is scheduled to be released by The Bruery on Nov. 5, while a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) indicates the stout will be packaged in 16-ounce cans.
