Upslope Releases Barrel Aged Imperial Stout!

We’re pumped to announce the release of the third volume of our quarterly limited release Lee Hill Series Thursday, February 19 at our original Lee Hill tap room in North Boulder. The Barrel Aged Imperial Stout continues the celebration of experimentation and creativity that has become the trademark of our small-batch brewery.

The Lee Hill Series Volume 3 Barrel Aged Imperial Stout was brewed to be aged in Leopold Bros. Maryland Rye Whiskey barrels. With copious amounts of Maris Otter malted barley and three distinct roasted grains this stout provides a chocolate, coffee and nuanced dark fruit flavor that fuses excellently with the unique character of the oak barrels. At 10% abv, this robust winter treat delivers spicy rye and smooth vanilla aromas imparted from the barrel aging process.


“Brewing and aging the Lee Hill Series in a small-batch format gives us the opportunity to experiment with the finest ingredients available,” said Head Brewer, Sam Scruby. “The Volume 3 Barrel Aged Imperial Stout is a sturdy, yet smooth, take on the classic stout style.”

After the strong successes of the first and second volumes of the Lee Hill Series releases, we are continuing our commitment to innovation by crafting small batches of cellar-worthy beer.

Beer lovers looking to taste the third installment on tap can head to both Upslope’s Lee Hill and Flatiron Park tap rooms.  We’ve got 19.2 ounce Barrel Aged Imperial Stout cans available for $10 (limit four) at our Lee Hill tap room only. Cheers!
