Conquest announces 2015 release date for The Finisher, variants

Conquest on Tuesday announced the return date for The Finisher, its massive anniversary imperial stout, which next year will be joined by three new variants.

Back on Jan. 25 of this year, the Columbia brewery held the inaugural release for The Finisher, a 17.5% imperial stout brewed with brown sugar and honey and fermented with champagne yeast to help bump up the ABV. The 400-bottle release sold out in 45 minutes. This coming January – Saturday, Jan. 24, to be specific – the second annual release will be held for the beer, along with three variants.

In addition to the standard version of The Finisher, which will likely have a similar bottle count next year, there will be two barrel-aged versions: Four Roses bourbon and Pappy Van Winkle bourbon. Those variants will be much more limited as there’s only one bourbon barrel each filled with the beer.

But the most limited version will be Coffee Finisher, a variantĀ of the beer treated with cold-brew coffee from Columbia’sĀ Loveland Coffee. Coffee Finisher will be limited to about 20 bottles total and will be raffled off for charity at the January release.

Look for more details as the release date approaches.
