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 %

Melker (241) - Varberg, - OCT 12, 2012
Very dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of raisins, vanilla, bitter chocholate and some roasted malt. Slightly sour and bitter. Kinda thin and watery actually.

vjohans (421) - SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Vintage 2012 Alcohol, coffee, wood, vanilla, brown blackish tanned minimal head. Heavy sweet, light bitter, medium to light body, long finish. The regular imperial Stout is better, this is unbalanced an the barral aging does not benefit the beer at all.

Pour out of bottle, thanks Aaron! Thick black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of big dark fruit, anise, some oaky tones with a hint of bourbon, slight vanilla with some sweet molasses, dark chocolate. Taste was a mix of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts into a bit of dark fruit, lots of anise, slight oak, sweet fruits into some vanilla, finishing sweet. Liked the original better, not much of the barrel in this.

bytemesis (4470) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle with thanks to _angst_. Pours clear ruby mahogany - really light for an impy, small tan head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving decent lacing. Aroma is roasty, with bourbon, vanilla and ashtray notes. Flavor is medium sweet and medium bitter, roasty with a bit of dark fruits and anise. Light body, smooth. This is a good American Strong Ale, not sure I would call it an imperial stout.

stoutnick (715) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle thanks to _angst_. Thank you! Pour is very thin, murky brown and muddy. Aroma is pretty multi-faceted - classic scandanavian imperial stout - vinous and winey with a port like aspect. Candied fruits makes this smell like a belgian strong. Taste is the same; not overly stouty. Very thin. Abv is well hidden. Lots of dark fruits, red wine, minor booze. Is this really a bourbon barrel aged beer? Overall, a nice drinker, but very belgian strong in body and flavours.

Lagrad ett par år. Smak och doft av mörk choklad, kaffe, vanilj, ek, bourbon, russin, plommon, vanilj, torkad frukt, sirap med toner av anis och rostade toner. Rund och len, tydlig syrlighet, med liten kolsyra och fin beska.

Bottle. An almost clear one, dark brown in color and with a small, dense, light beige head on top. There’s quite a lot of vanilla on the nose, with boozy bourbon, dried fruits, cocoa notes and some coffee and dark chocolate. Some bread crusts too. A tad too boozy on the palate, but in a pleasant way, it’s full-bodied and softly carbonated, semi-sweet, with flavors of vanilla, bourbon, dried fruits and cocoa. A nice bitterness too. Lasting boozy, vanilla and chocolatey finish. Pretty lovely this one, although a tad too boozy. Nothing that really annoys though. 140625
