Barrel Aged Triple Can Release


  • Junkyard Brewing Company 1416 1st Avenue North Moorhead, MN, 56560 United States (map)

A first ever Triple Barrel Aged can release by Junkyard Brewing Co. Join us for our Triple Barrel Aged Can Release! We are excited to release two barrel aged variants of King Size Imperial Peanut Stout side by side for the first time ever, plus a special barrel aged collaboration brewed with Vertical Malt Co. using their malts!

The Beers:


King Size (Willett Barrel Aged) - 12.4% Alc./Vol. - "Of the two King Size varieties being released, this one showcases the elements of bourbon and peanut butter cup with intensity, starting with an aroma that suggests you're holding a peanut butter cup under your nose and a glass of fine Kentucky bourbon in the other hand. You'll notice flavor notes of uncut bourbon, dry roasted peanut, bakers chocolate, and vanilla."

King Size (Buffalo Trace Barrel Aged) - 11.6% Alc./Vol.- "This edition of King Size brings the flavors of bourbon and peanut together in harmony with the rich, fudgy flavors of this imperial stout. Aromas suggesting dark chocolate and dried fruit give way to hints of bourbon barrel and peanut butter. The flavor reveals a fluid equilibrium of peanut, bourbon, and rich imperial stout.

Vertical Contemplations (Early Times Barrel Aged) - 11.2% Alc./Vol. - "This classic imperial stout leans in the roasty direction with aromas of vanilla, whiskey, and a wisp of black Cavendish pipe tobacco. Flavors suggest fig, chocolate covered cherries, and other dark dried fruits with a dry finish highlighting roasted malts and charred oak."
