Skeleton Key Raisin & Vanilla (2017)

Spiced Imperial Stout Aged in Rum Barrels
10.5% ALC./VOL.

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).

The OG is a velvety, warming, and lethally delicious stout that’ll induce sharp pangs of nostalgia long after your last bottle is empty. The lively elements of spice are balanced by the richness of the roasted malts, creating a delicious balance.
