BA Tiramisu Crew
BOURBON BARREL-AGED IMPERIAL STOUT
No press gang needed to join this ship’s company. With six months in the hold ageing in bourbon barrels, this voyage is off to the most fortuitous of starts. Rich mocha, cocoa, vanilla and sweet Tiramisu notes lift the sails and senses, making it plain sailing from here on out.

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
Amber, Cara, Carafa, Chocolate Wheat, Flaked Oats, Pale, Roasted Barley, Vienna
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.
