Justice Takes Time

Kevin is adding a new stout to barrels for a limited bottle release sometime in the next 4-6 months. This stout came in at over 9%, so it should remain around there. We'll see what he adds to it to support the dark, rich flavor of this traditional stout that will also complement the natural [...]
