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.

Ungstrup (34690) - 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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2011
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

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Josh for another rare opportunity to try Australian craft beer. Opaque dark brown stout with a small pale tan head. Light airy palate, slightly soft. Good tangy dark malts, little dark chocolate and a whisper of coconut. There is a fruity something going on as well. Light dry finish. Comes together well. Tasty.

thewolf (12136) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle. Thanks Bluebetty. Pours completely opaque black with a nice, staying, creamy beige head. Aroma has roasted malts, light dusty, chocolate and coffee, mild astringent oakiness with some vanilla and grapes. Medium to low carbonation, creamy and quite dry mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of oak character, red wine, grapes, vanilla. Lots of roasted malts and coffee that expands in the aftertaste. Fine astringency. Good Barrel aging.
