Dry Dock Brewing Company presents the 2016 Signature Series of small-batch, barrel-aged imperial and double beers. 

“Dry Dock Signature Series beers are the brewers’ playground,” says North Dock Head Brewer Alan Simons. “They’re also testers of our patience. My favorite part of the process? Tasting of course! We’re lucky enough to have access to excellent whiskey barrels in order to age these exceptional and ever-changing beers.”

Double Apricot Blonde

10% ABV, 20 IBU

released July 2016, SOLD OUT

Aged with apricot puree for five months in Colorado whiskey barrels, Double Apricot Blonde seamlessly melds fruit and bourbon flavors, creating notes of caramel and burnt sugar. This beer is surprisingly delicate in body, slightly tannic, and rounded out by dry oak and sweet sherry nuances.

Imperial Stout

10% ABV, 50 IBU

released August 2016

A robust imperial stout with pronounced roasted bitterness that is balanced by chocolate undertones and a dark fruit backbone. This velvety textured beer ages in whiskey barrels for 11 months, adding vanilla and coconut nuances to its flavor and aroma.

Double Vanilla Porter

10.5% ABV, 20 IBU

releases September 28, 2016 at North Dock at 2pm

Dry Dock’s classic Vanilla Porter recipe, amplified. This beer has a dark chocolate essence with hints of dark fruit and subtle smoke. Big-bodied and creamy, Double Vanilla Porter is a strong ale that takes on whiskey and oak aromas from the barrels it ages in, and finishes surprisingly dry for a beer of its brawn.

Raspberry Imperial Stout

10% ABV, 50 IBU

releases October 2016

A fresh take on our classic Imperial Stout. Rich raspberries added to this robust barrel aged beer amplify its dark fruit backbone for a taste as decadent as a chocolate raspberry cordial.

Hazelnut Double Coffee Porter

10.5% ABV, 30 IBU

releases November 2016

Bright, fruit-forward coffee is mixed with luscious hazelnut in our barrel aged Double Porter to create this brilliant taste experience that melds dark chocolate nuances, nuttiness, and gentle coffee acidity.

Bligh’s Barleywine Ale

10.5% ABV, 30 IBU

releases December 2016

Malty and complex, this big beer has a strong caramel backbone supporting oak and whiskey flavors with hints of dark fruits. The nose wafts of coconut, toffee, and a smooth hint of alcohol. The flavor and aroma meld, becoming one after just a single sip. This beer is ready to drink, but also ages with the best of them.
