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.

1/3 pint from tap @BrewDog Manchester Hazy dark brown body, with tiny layer on top. Dried fruit, prune, cherry and some bitterness. Velvety. Great and interessting experience, but it’s a tad too sweet, so 1/3 pint was more than enough. (7.Jul.2012).

brokensail (10917) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 2, 2012
A mahogany colored pour with an off-white head. Somewhat nutty aroma. Lots of toffee, some caramel, and a bit of cocoa. Quite a bit of alcohol, too. Not much in the way of barrel character. Sweet toffee and caramel malt flavor profile. A bit of toasted nuts, some chocolate, and a mild vanilla note. Some hints of fruit and light alcohol on the finish.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle 7818 from mi-orge, mi-houblon. Pours almost pitch black dark ruby with almost no head. Cork had to be encouraged out, very little initial carbonation. Nose is red vinous, milk chocolate, oak, pine chips, a pretty straightforward malty brown ale underneath with molasses and dark fruit. Mouth is full and chocolatey upfront, vinous, marsala, berry, milky, dusty cocoa and a touch of oak. Powdery milky end with a touch of vinous warm sweet alcohol like sherry. Not the best abstrakt, but a good experiment. Doesn’t take what it could from the wine barrel, considering the current spirit barrel zeitgeist.
