Baltimore, Md.— They say the best things are worth the wait. After aging for six months in charred Kentucky white oak bourbon barrels, this Wednesday, Oct. 22, DuClaw Brewing Company will release its Retribution brew, the embodiment of patience justified.
DuClaw first introduced Retribution to its lineup in 2011, and since then it has been released each October. The a full-bodied imperial stout is jet-black in color with a small tan head, and boasts a complex flavor profile of roasted malt, hop bitterness, chocolate and notes of dark fruit, charred oak, vanilla, caramelized sugar and bourbon designed to compliment chilly fall nights on the deck or near the fire.
“Most people know we’re known for pushing the limits both in brewing and naming,” said DuClaw Owner Dave Benfield. “Retribution is no different. After months of anticipation from our staff and those who have heard the buzz, it’s time to share the hallowed Retribution with our customers and fans.”
Retribution’s smooth, velvety texture is complimented aromas of coffee, cocoa, dark fruit oak, bourbon and a warming 11.2 percent AVB.
Retribution will be available starting October 22 at DuClaw restaurant locations in Arundel Mills, Bowie and Bel Air, and in 22 oz. bottles in stores across Maryland, DC, Delaware, Virginia, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
