Bottle of Stout Whiskey Lot No 2

Whiskey Distilled From Fully Brewed Stout 

In 2011 Marko became intrigued with the idea of distilling a whiskey from one of his favorite dark beers, Bear Republic’s Big Bear Black Stout. Made with over five different malts, Centennial and Cascade Hops, and at 8.1%, it sure had plenty to be curious about. If a distinctive flavor, far from the tried and true, makes you excited, this hopped whiskey distilled from Stout will be to your liking.

  • Made from bottle-ready, fully brewed Bear Republic Big Bear Black Stout
  • Distilled in our custom-made Alambic pot still
  • Aged for 50 months in French oak barrels

What to expect? A rich palate of coffee, chocolate and orange zest, unfolding layer after layer.

Marko on making Stout Whiskey

“Single malts only use a single malt—this Stout has over five different malts, as well as adjuncts and several different hop varieties. All of these qualities come through into an extremely complex whiskey.”

Kind words from Christopher Null, Drinkhacker

“a more mellow nose, offering a curio cabinet full of brown sugar, cinnamon, incense, and more grain character…”
Hops are used to make all of the Whiskies from Charbay
