Bottling the Barrel Aged Wendigo

After 3 months in the Tuthilltown Spirits bourbon barrel,  it was time to bottle up our 11% ABV russian imperial stout that we call Wendigo.  What is a Wendigo you ask?  Besides our kickass beer.  A Wendigo is a mythological demonic half-beast creature appearing in the legends of the Algonquian people. The Wendigo looked like a gaunt skeleton recently disinterred from the grave.  Modern science believes Wendigos are extinct and killed off by the modern day zombie apocalypse boom.  Little do they know the beast lives on!
