SKELETON KEY 2017 (coc0nut variant)

Spiced Imperial Stout Aged In Rum Barrels and conditioned on toasted coconut

Released annually, Skeleton Key is our rum barrel aged imperial stout, spiced with a mélange of ginger, all spice, black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, star anise, nutmeg, juniper berries, vanilla, and caramelized raisins. Because we do our best to be multi-faceted (in life, and in brewing) we upped the ante with this 2017 version and pulled off enough beer on blending day to make 2 additional variants. Must I remind you what the spice of life is? (WHOA FULL CIRCLE).

ABV: 10.5

The Silver Variant was further conditioned on toasted coconut, serving to round out the spice character and offer a perfect complement to the subtle barrel/spirit notes. Truthfully, writing this has made me realize that It's impossible to describe coconut in any other way aside from 'coconutty'. And although subtle, this variant strikes a perfect balance between each and every addition to the base beer.
