8 Wired 2013 Bumaye Imperial Stout (500ml Bottle)
Sometimes - OK, rather often, actually - I find myself asking, "How far can we take it?" Keeping in mind that flavour should be the main objective at all times, the conception of Bumaye was one of those moments. To make it we started out with the baddest imperial stout we have ever brewed, and then added loads of tasty sugars to the fermenter for extra flavour. To smooth out the roughness, we allowed the beer to mellow in Pinot Noir barrels for more than a year. Let's rumble. - Soren Eriksen, Brewer.
Imperial stouts are usually extremely dark brown to black in color with flavors that are intensely malty, deeply roasted and sometimes with accents of dark fruit (raisin, fig) or milk sourness. The bitterness is typically medium and often the low sie of that. Imperial stouts are strong and often exceed 8% by volume.
