RateBeer.com -- Correct Thornbridge Hall Heather Honey Imperial StoutThornbridge Hall Heather Honey Imperial Stout


Description:
Cask & bottle; Special.
The Heather Honey Stout was brewed using a single temperature infusion mash, utilising a complex malt grist including English chocolate, brown and peated malts. English Fuggles, American Palisade and Willamette hops were chosen for a fruity and earthy finish. Additionally, we added in locally-sourced heather honey from Sheffield Honey Company. The Stout was initially matured for 6 months: a third in brsnd new French oak casks, a third in Pedro Ximinez sherry casks and a third in former red Bordeaux wine casks. The beer was then blended back together and conditioned for a further period to allow the flavours to meld. It has been conditioned in bottle using Champagne yeast and more heather honey. The Stout pours near-black with a tan head, giving aromas of heather, oak, coffee, chocolate and liquorice. The mouthfeel is incredibly rich with full and complex flavours of lavender, raisins and dark chocolate gained from the marriage of the beer, heather honey and extensive barrel aging. The result is an astonishingly luxurious beer which can be savoured now or enjoyed in a few years time.
