About This Beer
King of Darkness is a small batch collab between Anchorage, who’s world-famous dark beers disappear almost as soon as they appear, and Side Project, the #13 Brewery in the World on Untappd!
This dream team started by brewing an immensely thick and rich Stout with a starting gravity of 43º Plato — that’s gotta be one of the densest beers we’ve ever seen! Then the brewers double oak aged the brew for two years: 8 months in just emptied Willet Bourbon Barrels and 16 months in Buffalo Trace Bourbon Barrels!
Enormous aromas of dates and cocoa covered raisins erupt out of every espresso-black pour. The sip follows the nose with complex nuances of a whole box of gourmet dark chocolate truffles served in opulent bourbon oak. Notes of whiskey caramel, cherry cordial, and coffee liquor course through every quaff.
