WHISKY CASK AGED IMPERIAL STOUT
Aged in whisky casks from the Isle of Islay off the Scottish coast, the latest of the Paradox Series provides a hugely complex, full bodied BA Imperial Stout.
This powerful stout delivers hints of floral, alongside intense, smoky and peated notes of single malt. Giving a lasting rich, malty, espresso and dark chocolate character, balanced by the spicy hops of Saaz. This is a stout that warms the senses.
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.
BA Imperial Stout
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
Cara, Flaked Oats, Pale, Extra Dark Crystal, Weyermann Carafa Types1/3
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.
Columbus, Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, Saaz
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!
