BERTHOUD, Colo. — City Star Brewing has released Outlaw Whisky Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, the latest in the City Star Zoller Barrel Aged Series, in the City Star taproom on Saturday, Feb. 2. The 2019 vintage of this imperial stout was aged one year in Spirit Hound Distillers whisky oak barrels and weighs in at a whopping 14 percent ABV. Outlaw features flavors of rich chocolate, toffee, dark dried fruit, oak, vanilla and of course American whiskey, with a rich and creamy mouthfeel that leaves you lingering for another pour.
