Imperial stout aged for at least 6 months in barrels of whiskey from Scotland’s best distilleries (each batch is bottled from a single cask of that year and the area of ​​origin is indicated on the label). It has aromas of vanilla, licorice, chocolate, wood and peat alternating alcoholic and ethereal nuances. In the mouth, warm and soft, complex but balanced: an unforgettable experience. Aged in Speyside Scotch barrels from 1969.

Ingredients: Water, malt, hops, yeast, spices.

33cl bottle - Islay 2002 (10% ABV) Bottiglia Nº 143. Black colour with small light brown lasting head. The nose is red grape, whisky, wood and chocolate (subtle). Smells like a really nice barrel aged brew. Great flavour: A LOT of wood, dark chocolate, coffee notes and roasted malts. Whisky aftertaste. The body is medium, maybe thin for an IS, while carbonation is just average. Some improves would make this beer awesome.

birrofilo91 (9) - siror, ITALY - JUN 3, 2013 does not count
Scura impenetrabile, schiuma grossolana e evanescente color tonaca di frate. Al naso torba e vaniglia. In bocca buon corpo, l’alcol scalda per bene, ancora vaniglia e legno accompagnato da note affumicate intense ma che non stancano mai, con un finale molto lungo. Birra ben fatta abbinabile a dolci al cioccolato amaro.t
