Illuminati Release #5 (2018):

Release Date: Monday, December 31st

10.7% ABV
We have a bourbon barrel aged Imperial Porter that we conditioned for over 3 years & the result is a huge, beautiful malt monster. You are welcomed with a warming, semi-sweet, malt aroma with strong notes of bourbon and oak. Upon first sip, you experience a boozy malt sweetness which slides between warm notes of caramel and toffee and a strong undercurrent of bourbon. As the beer opens up, these flavors begin to meld together and become a more interwoven tapestry of complex malt flavors that begin to resemble a dark winter cocktail. Subtle notes of hazelnut and amaretto round out the back end and you are left with a warming alcohol presence and a delightfully lingering finish. Ringing in at 10.7% abv, this beer would develop and morph as it is cellared or can be enjoyed in all its rowdy magnificence if you chose to open it up now. We hope you enjoy and close out 2018 on a high note.


Illuminati Release #4 (2018):

11.5% ABV
Bourbon Barrel Aged Dopplebock conditioned on Qualia Yirgacheffe Coffee. 11.5% with a big roast character followed by notes of bourbon and oak, finishes with a underlying malt sweetness and alcohol heat.


Illuminati Release #3 (2018):

13.2% ABV
We aged a beautiful Barleywine in some freshly emptied bourbon barrels for 14 months and then did some fun secondary fermentation with sweet cherries. The result is a wonderfully rich and complex ale with pronounced fruit sweetness and a really nice finish with a bit of alcohol warmth. This is a perfect beer to age to enjoy for the holidays or with some cool Fall weather.


Illuminati Release #2 (2018):

Release Date: Friday, July 6th

13.8% ABV
Woodford Reserve barrel aged strong dark ale. We left this monster in the barrels for 2.5 years and the finished product is amazing. All that time in the barrel created characteristics that are sure to blow your mind. Big robust notes of wood and alcohol collide with prominent components of malt and whiskey for a full bodied and robust ale that is sure to tickle your fancy. Perfect to enjoy now, or cellar for later, but definitely designed to be shared with others.


Illuminati Release #1 (2018):

Release Date: Sunday, February 25th

10% ABV
Dopplebock aged 6 months in Republic Restoratives barrels. Huge notes of caramel greet you in the nose, followed by a smooth rich drink of dark dry fruits and malt sweetness, finishes with a lingering note of dark fruit and a prominent presence of whiskey. Perfect to enjoy now, or cellar for later.
