BARREL AGED WINTERBREWED + BARREL AGED BOTTLE IMP
8.2 • GREENER FUTURES SERIES
This complex, blended barrel-aged creation brings together all the best elements of a post-meal digestif: two coffee-infused beers (Winterbrewed, The Bottle Imp), under the influence of a quartet of barrel treatments: rum, apple brandy, single malt scotch, and American whiskey. The Abominable Imp pours hazy dark brown with ruby undertones and a tan head. The aroma offers a medley of spirits, espresso and cocoa. The flavour offers oaky tannins, dark chocolate and subtle raisiny fruit notes. The finish is long with lingering wood and warmth.

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.
