This baby was aged in our whiskey barrels previously used for aging our imperial stout. The result is very interesting (especially if you compare those two beers). It’s 8 abv beer with a light peaty note on the nose and big wood character from the wooden cask itself. It feels like the beer has penetrated deep inside the wood and got it’s spark there instead of just sitting on the top layers, covered in Scotch.

Food pairing: smoked food, grill dishes, steaks.
