About This Beer
The brewers at Junkyard know that the fudgy, nutty decadence of Rocky Road makes an incredible midnight snack! That’s why they created Midnight Spider, enrobing cocoa nibs, toasted black walnuts, and creamy marshmallows within a roasted barley Imperial Stout.
And now they’ve barrel aged it not once, but twice!
Junkyard tucked this brew-baby into freshly-emptied Willett bourbon barrels for 9 months, then sent it back to bed for an additional 6 months in a second set of boozy oak.
Each velvety quaff feels like savoring a scoop of Rocky Road with a shot of whiskey on top. Oaky tones boost the marshmallowy sweetness with extra vanilla and spice, while the roasty, chocolatey base is like sneaking a bite of brownie batter. Its nutty finish and warming 12.3% ABV are enough to relax you without sending you to sleep.
