Stronzo Mr. Papsø's Sticky Rye - Bourbon barrel aged

Formerly brewed at Stronzo Brewing Co.
Gørløse, Denmark
12% · Stout - Imperial · 24 Ratings · Special Release ·
This beer is brewed in honor of the legendary Ratebeer fanatic Henrik Papsø’s 25.000anniversary. Henrik is fond of big black sticky things, so naturally we made him an Imperial Rye Stout brewed with an insane grist containing asstonishing 40% rye malt. This beer not only cost us blood sweat and tears - it also cost our brewer an iPhone... Stuck mashes, Clogged plate ¬filters, night time brewing - this beer was quite hard to conceive. We hate it... Almost... The process anyway... But we love the result. Sticky black burnt roasty goodness accompagnied by a nice subtle bourbon barrel character - Mr. Papsø delivers as allways…
