COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer is an 11.5% Imperial Brown Ale which we have aged in amazing Spanish sweet red barrels from Malaga. Stewart Bowman, our Head Brewer, devised an Imperial Brown Ale designed to perfectly complement the wine flavours and extract maximum depth and character from the giant barrels. We also felt the Imperial Brown Ale was ideally suited to be barrel aged and as well as the infusion of the Malaga wine character will also benefit added complexity and maturity from the time in oak.

Cool_Bond (1218) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2012
Smells great, tastes even much. The aftertaste lingers a long time. The flavor is licorice but soon transferred to the coffee flavor. Mostly good beer but I will not buy it again. Now I am waiting Akstrakt 11 that I ordered.
