We start with the highest quality, hand-selected barrels that we can get our hands on. We then fill them with Legion, our full bodied, complex Russian Imperial Stout and let them age for several months (occasionally over a year). The result is a beautiful marriage of the beer, barrel and spirit, contributing flavors of toffee, vanilla and candied fruits, all mingling with roasty, smooth Legion.
The barrels we use vary with each release, and are sourced from the finest distillers world-wide. This creates a uniquely different product with each vintage. Individual wooden barrels impart distinctly different flavors: vanilla, coconut, honey and toast, as well as any contribution from the barrels’ previous contents.
