Breckenridge Brewery today announced the launch of Barrel Aged Imperial Cherry Stout, the second release in its Brewery Lane series. Aged in 50% whiskey barrels and 50% port wine barrels, Imperial Cherry Stout features sweet-sour Montmorency tart cherries which play on the dark fruit flavors prevalent in a traditional Imperial Stout.
Breckenridge has created a complex flavor profile that marries the tartness of cherries with hints of wine, whiskey, and oak. Similar to the farm-inspired location of the brewery’s 12-acer Littleton campus, for which the series is named, Barrel Aged Imperial Cherry Stout is alluring and memorable.
“The Brewery Lane Series is a celebration of innovation and reflects our ambition to continue making more bold and adventurous beers,” said Todd Usry, President and Brewmaster of Breckenridge Brewery. “Imperial Cherry Stout is sophisticated yet welcoming, and aging it in a combination of port wine barrels and whiskey barrels makes this Brewery Lane release really interesting.”
Available in 750 ML cork and cage bottles, Imperial Cherry Stout boasts a 9.5% ABV. It is a small batch release available in limited markets. The Brewery Lane Series captures the extensive possibilities that come with the brewery’s continued growth.
