L’Impératrice – Barrel-Aged


Give me a woman who truly loves beer, and I will conquer the world.

Wilhelm II (1859-1941), German Emperor


  • Inspiration: Imperial Stout
  • Alcohol by Volume: 9% alc./vol.

Description

This Imperial stout aged in American Bourbon barrels features notes of roasted malt, with undertones of coffee, dark chocolate and vanilla flavoured caramel. Its velvety and gentle taste offers strong notes of roasting, supported by berries and the strong alcohol presence that gives it all the poise of a fine liquor.

Target Clientele

This stout is brewed at high density and with strong hops since in the old days, it had to withstand the long road to the Baltic States and to Russia where it was particularly sought-after by the Imperial court. This nectar will surely delight every sovereign, monarch, tsar and emperor at heart.
