Silva Stout took a lot of patience. We aged our Double Stout in oak bourbon barrels for seventeen months. Flavors are very complex. It starts off with dark chocolate truffles rolled in cocoa powder. Next is the vanilla and wood notes, with rich cherry-like fruitiness. After racking and filtering the ale, we blended in just the right amount of freshly brewed Double Stout to provide the perfect balance of bourbon barrel aging and freshness. Enjoy the culmination of years of flavor development now – no further aging required!

laiti (8031) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2014
Draught @ CBC’14
Aroma is a bit odd with deep cocoa tones and some chocolate. Flavour is sugary sweet with semi-dark chocolate, some cocoa and vanilla. Also some licorice at the end of the glass. Alcohol is present, but does not disturb. Too sweet and sugary but not bad. Reminds me of Anchor Porter.
