Blended bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout, aged on Ugandan vanilla beans.
Aged between 11 and 22 months in a variety of oak barrels:
Woodford Reserve Double Oaked, Heaven Hill and Wild Turkey
We've been waiting very patiently for these barrels to turn into gold, and the blended end product is thoughtfully selected and showcases a complex composition of comprehensive malt bills, barrels from different producers of high quality bourbon and long maturation times. We let this particular blend condition on a whopping 2,5 g/L of high quality Ugandan vanilla beans to amplify the creamy, caramel- and chocolate notes already present in the beer, while also lending some fluffy marshmallowy characteristics.
The aroma leaves no doubt that this beer has spent some quality time with oak and vanilla beans. Deep, caramelly notes unlocked from deep inside the wood and the malt utilized covers the palate. Melding into dark, creamy chocolate notes before bourbon fudge batter and marshmallow fluff lingers forever. It's all kept in check by tannins from the oak and a gentle amount of roast, keeping a firm and fresh finish, while still remaining a thiccie.
