Description

Necessary Evil is a lovingly crafted imperial stout, aged for 8 months in bourbon barrels. Aromas of sweet bourbon, vanilla, and oak from the aging process combine with rich chocolate, roasted malts, and caramel from the base beer. Soft and silky, Necessary Evil has layers of complexity and flavor unlike any other.
