Deep Wood Series FAQ:


Deth’s Tar: A Barrel-Aged Imperial Oatmeal Stout brewed with English specialty malts and the addition of flaked and malted oats to create a rich, chocolaty profile and silky mouthfeel that cloaks its considerable strength. The American oak barrels continue to build layers of complexity, reminiscent of vanilla, toasted coconut and caramel candy after aging this dark menace a full 12 months. ABV: 14.8%

Cafe Deth: A weaponized quantity of freshly roasted whole bean coffee from independent Chicago roasters imbues our Deth’s Tar Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout with assertive coffee aromatics without overshadowing the base beer on the palate. Pair with rich food or enjoy on its own. ABV: 14.8%

Deth by Cherries: Unfermented tart cherries add a mild acidity and subtly rounding sweetness to our Deth’s Tar Barrel-Aged Imperial Oatmeal Stout. Flavors and aromas of bourbon and oak meld harmoniously with the fruit, each balancing the other. Enjoy now or store cold. ABV: 13.1%


Deth by Currants: We accidentally spilled a whole bunch of black currant juice into four barrels of Deth’s Tar while filling them last year. Tart, sweet, and fruity, this variant is a significant departure from the others. ABV: 14%

Deth by Plums: Our Deth’s Tar Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout with plums. The unfermented fruit lends a satisfying acidity and smoothing sweetness to this bruiser without making it chunky” or syrupy. Only a few kegs produced, so get it while it lasts. ABV: 11.4%

Vanilla Deth: You want vanilla? Fine. How about some bourbon-soaked vanilla beans in 2016 Deth’s Tar? That’s right. ABV: 13.5%

Cocoa Deth: Ecuadorian cocoa nibs provide a greater range of flavors and aromatics than the everyday variety. They’re fermented not unlike some other niche products, imbuing them with organic subtle complexities. Expect a big ol’ dark chocolate nose and flavor with a hint of nuttiness. ABV: 13.5%
