Thornbridge Hall Imperial Oatmeal Stout


Brewed by Thornbridge
Bakewell, England
Style: Imperial Stout | Ratings: 65 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 11%
Bottled, special
Our Imperial Oatmeal Stout has been brewed using a single temperature infusion mash. A large proportion of Scottish Oatmeal was combined with a profusion of English coloured malts to give an incredibly rich and decadent brew. To bring harmony to this powerful malt grist, English Fuggle hops were used exclusively for bittering and adding aromas of stone fruit. After primary fermentation and a period of conditioning, the beer was aged in famous Kentucky Bourbon barrels for six months, lending their unique influence to the final flavour. Conditioning was then finished in the bottle using Champagne yeast. Malts : Maris Otter, Flaked Oats, Crystal, Dark Crystal, Chocolate and Roast Barley Hops : Fuggles
