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 %

Furseth (1979) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2013
Sample from bottle at ÖWGBG-2013: Hazy dark red colour, with a thin brown head. Aroma had aloys of woody,whisky "nose",sweet maltynes, and vanilla!! and fruits. Flavor had a smouth mouth feeling of caramelly,vanilla,wooody, and a nice alcy finish, complexity is the Word for this beer. Big body and a long woody/fruity finish.

Nydelig duft av kaffe, bek, lakris og sjokolade. Dyp mørk farge, nesten sort. Lite skum, noe langs kant. Nydelig smak av kaffe, bek, lakris og mørk sjokolade med en litt spiss ettersmak. Kjempegodt.

alkolas510 (697) - SWEDEN - APR 30, 2014
Kolsvart med litet ljusbrunt skum. Doftar ekfatslagring, whisky och vanilj! Mycket whisky och lite kaffe och choklad i smaken. Ganska besk och lite alkoholsmak. Lite blaskig för en imperialstout. Riktigt bra öl!

Cool_Bond (1562) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2014
The smell is of oak, tar and strong alcohol. The taste is really good. Coffee, dark chocolate with a good bitterness. Not too dry. Just right. Bitterness in the aftertaste lies down on top of the tongue for a long time. Much like a Cappochino can be said about the aftertaste. I liked this a lot.

Lawger (124) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 The aroma is deep and gloomy goodness right from the start. Dark malts, some oak casks and some spiciness. With more time and temperature there’s an almost tart aroma of unripened cherries emerging. Quite full bodied and fairly complex on the palate. Very long finish. This is well made and a significant step up from the regular Imperial Stout which is rather mediocre.
