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.

On tap at Camden Brewdog. So after the somewhat stunted Hunters and Libertine - is there salvation in AB 10 at an eye watering £5.95 a third pint? The £18 pint? WTF? Hazy dark red beer, good pale tan head. Smooth soft palate, airy and semi dry. Light toffee malt and malt cream. Very nice berry things going on - mild blackcurrant, cherry and a whisper of strawberry. Finishes soft and smooth. A corker of a beer, well integrated and smooth, hides the abv really well. Plus I don’t think we have had anything like this from a British brewer and precious few from anywhere else. Reminds me of the Norrebro Port barrel beers a little. I would still have another, even at these prices ...
