Schlafly Imperial Stout aged 17 months

  • SRM Color : 70
  • Brewer: Schlafly
  • Brewer's Description:  Schlafly Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout is brewed with a big malt flavor, plenty of hop bitterness for balance and roasted barley that imparts notes of dark chocolate. As a finishing touch, the beer is transferred to freshly-emptied Kentucky bourbon barrels and aged before being carbonated and bottled.  The barrel aging gives the beer a spicy, vanilla character and a pleasant, warming finish.
  • Recommended Glassware: A Spiegelau Stout Glass 
  • Russ' rating: 10 / 10
  • With the brew: Dinner with roasted meat or chicken
  • Comments: It was hard not to crack this one open earlier. I liked it quite a lot last time I reviewed it, and it has only gotten better with age. It poured a rich opaque black with a mocha head consisting of average ( 0.5mm - 0.7mm bubbles ). The aroma was a deeply sweet malty wave. One big change from the aging was the hops are much more subdued and only are a small hint inside the huge toasted malty flavor of the barley and the sharp oak. An excellent beer.
