Boughs of Barley 2018: Scotch Whisky Stout - Imperial / Double
Ah, the Holiday season. Thanksgiving feasts. Christmas decorations galore. Menorahs being lit. Friends and family around a roaring fire. And maybe the unavoidable screaming match over politics or your sister’s latest idiot boyfriend. However you celebrate, the joy abounds.
That’s what Boughs of Barley is for: celebrating the season in all its glory. This brew started off big, then we made it massive. An Imperial Stout that spent 18 months aging in freshly-dumped Scotch Whisky barrels, you can expect a faceful of earthy smoke to dominate, with wisps of roasted coffee and chocolate coming through, and a long-lasting finish, all topped off with a warm body.
Grab a bottle while it lasts, because this limited release will be gone by the time you give up on your New Year’s resolution!
