Fegley’s BrewWorks Insidious

Well, it sure doesn’t feel like Old Man Winter is planning on following the groundhog’s orders anytime soon. Brisk temperatures and biting winds…I think it’s safe to say everyone is DONE with winter! If you’re not escaping to the Caribbean and need something to take your mind off the cold, this week’s release will surely do just that! Fegley’s Insidious Imperial Stout AND it’s Bourbon Barrel-Aged counterpart are back on the scene and ready to help your mind drift to an island far, far away….

This 9% abv Russian Imperial Stout is brewed with tons of roasted barley and chocolate and caramel malt, hopped with English East Kent Goldings and fermented with an English ale yeast. Rich and robust, yet incredibly smooth, Insidious has big flavors of chocolate, sweet caramel malt and dried fruit with a good amount of bitterness in the finish. If you’re looking for something even more sinful, grab some of their Barrel-Aged version that rested for over a year in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. This boozy rendition boasts more intense chocolate and caramel plus additional flavors of vanilla and bourbon. Mmmm good. Grab a few bottles of each for comparison purposes…drink some now and save a few for later. Both versions are bottle conditions and can therefore be aged in your cellar for years to come.
