Barrel aged (bottled) version only
This 2007 barrel aged imperial stout is our inaugural vintage release. Permanently ’borrowed’ from the winery after 2 years work aging estate grown chardonnay, the fine oak tannin supports the residual sweetness and adds structure to the malt palate. Moo Brew contains no additives or preservatives and is not pasteurised. Cellar in cool temperatures. Enjoy.

With out superlatives. An amazing beer that has a depth and richness that belies its 8%abv. A stunning and rare beer on tap

Ungstrup (29989) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2011
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, wood, bourbon, and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of alcohol, as well as medium notes of roasted malt and wood, leading to a dry roasted finish.

Skyview (5283) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Received 330 bottle (894/1515) via trade with jonno. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with a thick tan head that slowly dissipates to a foamy tan head. Aroma of toasted dark malt, Bakers chocolate, some light soy, floral and citrus hops and a touch of coffee. Taste is full bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of toasted chocolate malt, a touch of coffee, black licorice and soy sauce. Finish has a sharp bitterness at first followed by some dark chocolate malt, soy and black licorice. Very impressive.

Bottle 894. Thanks Skyview! I’m pretty sure that one should’t compare to existing beers, but my first thought was along the lines of "07 Surly Darkness"!! This beer easily compares to that pinacle release from Surly. The brown head didn’t last as long as the other beers, but it was initially massive. The chard barrels add a divine balancing flavor to the rich, roasted malts. Some black licorice, coffee, carob and just the right amount of soy make for an impressive offering. And on a side note the labels from this brewery are simple and compelling - a refreshing change from some of the overly complex beer and wine labels crowding the shelves.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2014 Bottle from Mane Liquor and on tap at Sail and Anchor. Pours jet black with a small beige head. Aroma is very roasty. Lots of chocolate and coffee with a bitter sweetness about it. Some pleasing oak and vinous notes. Loved it. Surprisingly when on tap this got a lot worse as it warmed. Bottle was different however. Some jamminess to the milk chocolate and heavy coffee. Very mocha like with heavy vanilla and oak sweetness. Quite vinous stuff. Works well. Great drop ***re-rate 2012 vintage had in London from Mane Liquor*** still holding up well, touch sweet and fudgey, mouth feel is great and the booze is hidden nicely. Nothing to blow your mind but a decent impy
