COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after Pedanius Dioscorides (40 AD - 90 AD), a noted Ancient Greek physician and botanist, this Imperial Stout was brewed with black caraway seeds and aged it in rye whiskey barrels.

Upon pouring, you will be greeted with aromas of dark chocolate, plums and molasses; all complemented by the herbaceous spiciness of caraway seeds. Flavors of licorice, treacle and light smokiness will greet your tongue and are rounded out by vanilla and woody notes from the rye whiskey barrels. The barrels also contributes an additional alcohol spiciness and lively texture on the palate.

Style: Rye Whiskey-aged Imperial Stout
ABV : 12.1%

Hoprider (716) - DENMARK - APR 7, 2017
Pitch black pour with crema like head. Nose has cristmas cookies, coconut, brownie and lots of rye barrel spices. Reeealy nice nose. Taste is filthy rich with deep dark chocolate, wet eye barrel, oak spices, and burnt sugar. The burnt goes away after 30 minutes but still very deep flavours here. Lingering aftertaste. Thick, slick mouthfeel. Decadent stuff. Very grown up savoury flavours along with the sweeter dark malts and chocolate.
