We are pleased to announce the next beer in our Barrel-Aged Series and, get ready, because this one is a 14.2% ABV doozy. Here you have what could be the first malt liquor worthy of a glass. Typically a slighted style, we thought we would class it up with a stay in the wood and a healthy dose of dry-hopping. A huge hit of corn gives this one a smooth sweetness while its time spent aging in bourbon barrels will give you reason to share. Be warned: this one’s a pry-off, not a twist-off. This is the first time we’ve released DKML, though our Brewmaster, Jeremy, has taken the recipe through multiple trial batches over several years. It marks the fourth release in our Barrel-Aged Series, preceded by Frootwood, KBS and Doom.

    Being a Okie this reminded me of drinking moon shine. The smell and taste was of corn with just a note of sweetness. The mouthfeel was a little thin but the height ABV was well hidden.
