COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Vignale (2061) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2014
Smakprov på CBC 2014. Påkopllad igen på sista passet. Visste lite i förväg om drycken. Tog den för en kaffeporter vilket säger något om hur väl alkholen var dold och att den hade runda, söta och välrostade smaker. Mycket kaffe/espresso, lätt syrlig, välrostad malt, lite lakrits, choklad, vanilj, torkad frukt. Relativt söt. Bra balans och smaker. Riktigt god.
