Russian Imperial Stout Barrel Aged
A mighty Russian Imperial Stout is the foundation of the “Sonnenkönig V.” which has been stored in a cherry brandy ash wood barrel for several months. Black as night, the prominent beer impresses with a distinctive roast flavour which, however, still allows for the expression of some sour cherry and wood flavours as well. It is not an accident that the taste reminds of a ripe Burgundy wine, as nose and palate experience a whole array of flavours, including dark stone fruit, coffee and, last not least, a delicate touch of balsamic vinegar. In union with the alcoholic body, these flavours sway in a long last dance of a majestic ball night.
