COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Imperial Stout has spent the last 6 months ageing in oak taking on the famous characteristics of Glenlivet whisky. The Stout’s rich, smooth, roasty flavours combine with the whisky character to produce a complex beer, layered with big flavours. Enjoy as an after-dinner treat or as an accompaniment to full-flavoured cheeses.
