COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer is an 11.5% Imperial Brown Ale which we have aged in amazing Spanish sweet red barrels from Malaga. Stewart Bowman, our Head Brewer, devised an Imperial Brown Ale designed to perfectly complement the wine flavours and extract maximum depth and character from the giant barrels. We also felt the Imperial Brown Ale was ideally suited to be barrel aged and as well as the infusion of the Malaga wine character will also benefit added complexity and maturity from the time in oak.

Bottle @Craig’s (Abstrakt tasting). Pours murky brown, no head, no carb. Nose is fruity, chocolate, sherry. Taste is fruity, red wine, caramel, the only fault with this was a slight petrol taste to it.

Bottled. Somehow this one has just stuck around, without being drunk, but then again I suppose the extra aging hasn’t atleast made things worse. Deep ambery brown colour with a minor off-white head, which disappears quite quickly. Aroma is alcohol, chocolate, some sherry, mild ripe fruits as well as some raisins. Flavour is sweet malts, chocolate, some raisins, ripe fruits, mild sherry, berries, some toffee and mild nutty notes. Not all too disturbing alcohol, and in fact rather mellow.
