The case includes:
To Øl | Liquid Confidence Rum Barrel – The Danish masters bring the heat, literally and figuratively, with their latest and most epic imperial stout release. Liquid Confidence is a massive 15.1% chili stout made with Ancho, Guajillo and Chipotle then laid down in sweet rum barrels for 10 months.
Kees | Caramel Fudge Stout Buffalo Trace Barrel – Loads of sweet caramel and chocolate lay the foundation with a distinctive wood and mild bourbon burn threading through.
Kees | Caramel Fudge Stout Cognac Barrel – The same base beer as above, this time aged in Cognac barrels. A great way to distinguish the subtle complexities each barrel can impart.
Seven Island | Rocky Road Fudge – A big, sweet desert in a can. Grecian Seven Island throws the whole sweet shop into the massive 12% Imperial pastry stout.
Wild Beer | B.A.B.S III – 2020's Barrel Aged Blended Stout isn't shy at 14.5%, but those high alcohols meld perfectly with the Sherry barrels in this blend… a first time for this series.
De Struise | Cuvee Delphine – Ask me my favourite brewer in the world and on the right day I may say De Struise (The Sturdy Brewers) from Flanders. Cuvee Delphine is their world-famous Black Albert Imperial Stout aged in Four Roses barrels.
Northern Monk X Mikkeller | Patrons Project 7.07 Imperial Coffee Stout – Coffee for days from a special espresso roast from Coffee Collective in Denmark. A wonderfully balanced imperial stout collab from two brewing gods.
