Aged on bourbon barrels.

Barrel Aged Imperial Stout 2012 är en imperial stout – det vill säga ett opastöriserat, överjäst och mycket mörkt öl av gammaldags brittisk typ – som lagrats på bourbonfat. Den präglas av stor kryddighet där smak och doft av vanilj, torkad frukt, kaffe och kakao balanseras av en lätt bränd sötma och humlens aromer. Tydliga drag av ek och bourbon ackompanjerar de övriga smakerna till fulländning.

Klassifikation: Fatlagrad imperial stout

Användning: Slottskällans Barrel Aged Imperial Stout 2012 är en öl som långsamt kan avnjutas i små klunkar i till exempel ett konjaksglas, antingen som den är eller eller tillsammans med ostar, nötter eller blandade, inte allt för starka salamisorter. Ett annat lysande komplement till den här ölen är choklad eller en god vanlijglass.

Innehåll: Fyra sorters malt: pilner-, choklad- och svartmalt samt ljus karamellmalt.
Tre sorters humle: Northen brewer, Fuggle och East kent golding.

Alkoholhalt: 11 %

adnielsen (10037) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle @ home, courtesy of Swedish friends. Thanks Alex and Thomas! Pours a black appearance with a nice sized brown head. A bit tangy fruity, plum, raisin, fig, big anise, roasty malty aroma. Kind of bitter and strangely cloying syrupy sugary, dark chocolate, light vanilla, big raisin/dark grape/anise flavor. I really didn’t get any bourbon in this. Pretty similar to the non-barrel aged version.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2013 First rating
33 cl bottle ordered by the single bottles from Systembolaget. BB 140912, sampled on November 9, 2012.
Very dark brown color, small light brown head. Sweet, alcohol, chocolate, smoke scent. Sweet, alcohol, acidic, dry, grainy taste. Dry, grainy aftertaste. Warming alcohol. Medium to smooth mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.
Feels rather young, for my taste needs to rest a bit and smooth off the hard alcohol edges.
