COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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

Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of bluebetty. Pours pitch black with a lively black head - very lively actually comes gushing slowly. Lovely oaky aroma atop some hard roast and licorice. Only medium body, fairly dry roast, a little rustic from the barrel probably some bugs in there but also a mellow oakiness and some very bitter dark chocolate. Some malt astringency. But lovely indeed. 150311

Tap at The Local Taphouse in Melbourne. Pour is very deep ruby to near black with a thin yet persistent, creamy, tan head. Nice wispy lace appears. Belgian candies, red licorice, tamarind, lime, burnt caramel, and other complexities that remind me of a Belgian Christmas ale. Taste is peppery, woody, dry, lots of bitter roasted malt, unsweetened chocolate, and near astringent bitterness and charred wood work together to make this the obvious imperial stout out of the blind tasting. Rich, dry, moving to silky palate. Very nice.

2008 Vintage: Purchased for the express purpose of medium term aging. However, this did not look that good. Poured well with a big fizzy head and the nose showed dark chocolate with a faint hint of licorice. Nothing really took hold in the palate apart from a dry red wine woody note. Seemed quite dried out to me, suggesting age has not helped at all. A weird lemon / wood note to finish.
