COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our Imperial Stout that we age in conditioning tanks with oak staves. This adds a classic character of old world aging without the Bourbon tones. This black ale is about 12% ABV and very rich in roasted and chocolate malt tones. Velvety smooth and able to be aged for years. For now this will be a seasonal beer offering.

neongolden (1786) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2017
(2013 version on tap @ Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen, May 11/17) Pours black with a tan head. Notes of quite roasted malts, burnt, ashy, nutty toast, light chocolate, some raw sugar, umami, leathery oak. A bit thin, very dry, almost mineral, with acidic roast that carries burnt notes all the way through to the aftertaste, where it’s augmented by some booze as well. Feels a bit oxidized, maybe the ~4yo nature of the beer. Mouthfeel not so substantial for style, carbonation soft. Eh, I think I see what the target was, but fresher/barrel might improve hitting it. As is, the thin bitter vibe doesn’t work so well for me.
