Iñigo Montoya is our Yodo con Leche Imperial Porter, carefully aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels.  A Costa Rican slang term for coffee, “Yodo” means something rich, dark and intense or it is directly translated to "iodine".  It’s a perfect name for this distinctive beer. We used organic coffee beans courtesy of producer Alberto Delgado. He owns and manages Finca Los Cipreses, a three hectare farm in the La Joya district of Tarrazú, Costa Rica. We had them custom roasted by Chicago's Gaslight Coffee Roasters for the freshest, smoothest flavor.  Add to this Argentine dulce de leche (milk caramel), three caramel malts, three dark malts including chocolate rye, and finally oatmeal, to create several layers of creamy chocolatey goodness.  During it’s debut, Iñigo Montoya won a Silver medal at the 2014 Festival of Wood and Barrel-Aged Beer in the Classic Porter/Stout category.  This year’s variant was dressed up in hazelnuts and won a Gold medal at the 2016 Festival of Wood and Barrel-Aged Beer in the Specialty Strong Porter/Stout category.
