Limited Edition Winter Series Launched
As the days draw shorter and the festive season approaches we felt it was time to beef up our Winter brews offering.
Both beers have been brewed as companions to the multi award winning ‘Best Beer in Ireland’ Imperial stout. The brewing team looked to the brewing traditions of Belgium and England respectively for the beer styles and all three beers embody the spirit of Winter, cold nights, celebrations, good company and fireside conversation.
Available exclusively in the Independent Off Trade and Specialists.
Grab ’em while you can – only 210 cases of each made and they will be quick to fly off the shelf.
Imperial Stout 10.8% RRP €4.60
Complex, Dark, Rich
Deep black with a tan coloured head. The aroma offers some roast coffee and cocoa nib with a hint of both sherry and whiskey notes. A rich mellow taste on the palate with coffee and bitter chocolate from the dark roasted malt. The high alcohol content is balanced by the malt and intense sherry barrel flavours.
The rich full body finishes with the slightest hint of dry Oloroso Sherry fruit. Aging for four months in Oloroso Sherry Casks which has held “The Whistler” range of Single Malt whiskeys for 2+ years has extracted complex vanilla and spice notes to this special edition Imperial Stout.
