Imperial Stout Aged On Whisky Barrels
Peaty is one of a kind but yet part of a duo. A single imperial stout that we let rest on two different types of Swedish High Coast Whisky oak barrels. A few of the barrels were smooth and the others, you guessed it, peaty. One of the ways we like it. Skål!
There arn’t too many Swedish whiskey makers, so getting a couple of barrels from one of them, for us, is a big deal. We stroke up a conversation with High Coast Whiskey and they sent us a couple of barrels that had previously contained their peaty whiskey and a couple that had contained an un-peated version. Let’s call that version smooth. Upon receiving the barrels we filled it with the best beery, malty lovely liquid canvas we could think of to showcase both beer and barrel flavor. This resulted in two beers; Peaty and Smooth. A true testament of what whisky barrels can bring to a beer. Heaven!
