The Dark Knight – The Dark Knight is our double fermented Old Eight Porter, aged in Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrels for 6-12 months. Double fermented refers to a second “feeding” of various sugars to increase the alcohol content as well as bolster the flavor. Chocolate, coffee, charcoal, and bourbon are the familiar notes for this beer. Served in a 5 oz pour, the bourbon note from this tap is very prominent as it is a first time use of the barrel.
The Dark Knight Returns – The same profile as the Dark Knight, however, since this is a second time we’ve used the barrels, the bourbon note is less prominent and as a result the beer is more rounded and balanced. The 2012 DKR was aged for an unbelievable 18 months before release!
