The Arbre series is an exploration of barrel toast. We brewed a rich, malty imperial stout and divided it into three parts, laying each down in brand new American oak barrels from our friends at Kelvin Cooperage in Kentucky. This variation of Arbre spent time resting in lightly toasted barrels and reveals notes of oak as well as raisins and just a hint of smoke. A remarkable beer on its own, but even more exciting when tasted side-by-side with its medium toast and alligator char counterparts for a truly educational experience.
