Whiskey Widow Porter • Hogshead Whiskey Barrel Aged (2013)
The Black widow has emerged from her hiding place and is spinning a whole new web! Whiskey Widow is a darkly sublime porter that has been aged for three months in an Edgefield Whiskey barrel! The result is a Dark elixir, rich with oaky smoothness, a bold bourbon aroma, and hints of vanilla! This is truly a dark beauty that packs a vicious bite!

The Black Spot • Three Rocks Rum Barrel Aged (2013)
If a pirate was found to be a traitor to his captain, crew, or ship he would be condemned by receiving a small slip of paper with a blot of ink- the Black Spot. No man wanted to be “put on the spot,” but we’re trying to change that with this Three Rocks Rum barrel aged Black Widow. This grog spiked concoction has a smooth, nearly tropical aroma that promises flavors of banana, coconut, vanilla, and unsweetened chocolate.

Whiskey Widow • Barrel Aged (2012)
This version of Whiskey Widow is a darkly sublime porter that was aged for three months in a bourbon whiskey barrel, and then cold cellar conditioned for over a year. What further sets this barrel apart is that it started its life as a Port barrel before having Bourbon finished in it. The result is a mysterious black elixir, rich and silky smooth, with a bold bourbon aroma and hints of chocolate & vanilla. Truly a dark beauty that packs a vicious bite!
