COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 %

Artikelnummer hos Systembolaget: 891151-03

LoFi (1637) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle. Black with a dark beige head. Aroma: roasted, mayonnaise, toffee, some coffee and chocolate. Taste: same touch of mayonnaise as in the aroma, soy sauce, together this reminds me of a certain inside out maki, also kräftspad med dill, coffee and cocoa, citrus, bourbon, medium bitter. Quite full bodied. This has probably gone a bit wrong. The base beer is much better. I have another bottle in the cellar to try later, and can update the rating if necessary.

SirLimpsalot (2439) - SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2012
@ Basunen: Lite blek kolaaktig doft. Lätt kryddig smak med något som känns som chili i eftersmaken. Het men inget särskillt.

TheJestersBeer (2156) - SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a dark mahogany, with a thin beige head. Malty, oaky aroma, vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, ashes, banana peel, yeast. Semi-sweet, full bodied, medium bitterness, slightly low CO2. Malty, woody taste, vanilla, a faint sour note, tannins, caramel, dried fruit, raisins, coffee. Finishes quite fiery from the high alcohol, and the sweetness gets a bit cloying. Not overly impressed. (2012-09-26)

NordicV (1270) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 Mörkt brun, nästan svart öl med ett beige skum. Doften påminde mig om blöt sur ved. Även lite whiskeysötma och några rostade toner. I smaken var trät något nedtonat gentemot doften. Vanilj, choklad och viss maltighet balanserade upp. Betydligt bättre på fat (3,7)

Vignale (2281) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2012
Flaska från SB. Mörkbrun vätska, lågt snabbt försvinnande skum. Väldigt kryddig doft. Nejlikor, garam masala, viss alkohol, sötlakrits och något vinöst drag. Spritig och kryddig smak, lite len whiskey typ red label, sötlakrits. Viss beska, inte lika massivt som den vanliga IS utan istället ganska spritig. Nja, bra men inte mer.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2015 (Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 29 Sep 2012) Dark brown colour, almost black, with brief beige head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, chocolate, a touch of coffee and vanilla. Malty, roasted taste with notes of dried fruit, chocolate, vanilla, brown sugar and a gentle, spicy bitterness in the finish. Full body, with a certain sweetness (but not overly sweet). Chewy and almost oily mouthfeel. Very nice. (7/4/8/5/15=3.9) Rerate: (Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 17 Oct 2014) Black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of coffee, dried fruit, chocolate, vanilla and hints of whisky. Malty, roasted taste with chocolate, coffee, dried fruit, a touch of whisky, oak wood, liquorice and a balanced roasted bitterness in the finish. Full body, with a certain sweetness. Very tasty, and in excellent balance, with alcohol fairly well hidden. Excellent beer!
