Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout
This is 16 Stout!
Celebrating that Dugges in the year 2020 turned 15 years old we brewed three very special beers. One of them was 15 stout! An imperial stout with 15 different species. We put vanilla, cinnamon, cacao, tonka beans, licorice, salt, ginger, cardamon, muscovado sugar, coconut, coffee, poppy seeds, nutmeg, clove and star anis in there. For 16 stout, we put 15 stout in bourbon barrels transforming it into a bourbon barrel aged imperial.
An Englishman Walks Into a Bar
In 2002 Mikael Dugge Engström, the founder, CEO and Brew Master of Dugges Bryggeri had a meeting with an Englishman. What was said at the meeting has long since been forgotten. What was said at the following pub visit is why Mikael in 2004 started Dugges and why we are here today, 16 years later. This beer is our 16th birthday beer. We knew we wanted to do a 16th birthday beer so last year we took our 15 stout and filled some bourbon barrels and what did we get? A huge 18% bourbon barrel aged imperial birthday stout. Sweet Sixteen!
