12TH ANNIVERSARY IMPERIAL STOUT
Dog H is our latest liquid milestone, brewed to celebrate our eleventh anniversary. So what else could we do but turn it up to that number?
Captivating dark malts, Naga chilies, cacao and coffee. And then cognac. Dog H keys into the Auld Alliance thanks to the influential embrace of French brandy. This is barrel-ageing done right.
The result is a compelling beer with flavour peaks as high as the Alps. Enjoy it now or keep it for a decade. Dog H will reward you at the end, either way. Bon Anniversaire indeed.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
Brown, Chocolate Wheat, Flaked Oats, Pale, Rye, Wheat, Extra Dark Crystal
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
