North Brewing x Field Recordings, Monument, BA Stout, 11%
Brewery: North Brewing Co.
Style: BA Imp Stout
Our first Barrel Aged Imperial Stout. A beer that has slept in waiting for almost a year.
We started with a complex grist of the choicest malts bringing a plethora of rich and enticing flavours. Then aged the finished beer in Buffalo Trace, Jim Beam, Heaven Hill, Appleton Rum + Speyside Scotch barrels, before blending.
It starts with upfront flavours of brandy soaked raisin, moving to a gentle warming note of cinnamon. Slightly tropical coconut notes come forward quickly dissipating into a bitter dark chocolate note. As it warms, it sweetens bringing out a touch of slightly tart red berry, morello cherry with a lasting + continuously building whisky character finishes the beer with long notes of allspice, clove, orange zest + sherry.
