Hoop & Stave No. 5 is a Doppelbock aged over one year in rye whiskey barrels. This deep hued ale with ruby highlights has beautiful color and slight chocolate-like aroma. This German Style Lager has rich and malty flavors commonly found in Doppelbocks, but the whiskey barrels enhanced dark fruit characteristics such as figs, cherries and plums.
