Alc Vol. 10.0%
ESPRESSO IMPERIAL STOUT
18th Century extravagance meet 21st century excess.And decadence meets detante in this bitter-sweet psychosis of an Imperial stout. Richer than an Oligarch, this beer has gone nuclear. Silky smooth coffee beans, chocolatey cacao nibs and dark malts combine to excess. All firmly resting on toasted malt foundations.
Cocoa Psycho – Tsar quality.
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, Pale, Roasted Barley, Wheat, Extra Dark Crystal, Beech Smoked
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!
