Imperial Black Friday and the Darkest Day of the Year have come and gone this season. But winters are long in Minnesota, and there’s no better way to get through the doldrums than with a malty, black-as-night beer. Finnegans is dedicating a full week to dark brew, kicking things off with a Smoked Baltic Porter on Sunday. Each day will have its own special tapping, with Dark Rage Milk Stout, Dark Chocolate Mint Stout, Scottish Stout, Spruce Tip Porter, and a bourbon barrel-aged Dead Irish Poet all on the schedule. Things wrap up on Saturday, January 19, with the release of Caorthannach Russian Imperial Stout, which will also be available in an aged version that has spent time in pinot noir and whiskey barrels.
