BOURBON BARREL-AGED CHOCOLATE STOUT
Black as a galaxy and dense as a neutron. This bourbon barrel-aged chocolate stout is an imperial force to be reckoned with. Coffee and dark chocolate aromas rise. Flowing, thick and sweet, with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, prunes, toffee and forest fruits interplaying with a deft touch of vanilla and rye spiciness. Lactose reinforces the sticky smooth delivery. Culminating in a warming finale.
AB 27 - The dark side.
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
Black, Brown, Cara, Carafa, Chocolate Wheat, Crystal, Flaked Oats, Pale, Pilsner, Roasted Barley, 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.
