Five Barrel Imperial Stout is brewed in January and aged on oak for 4 months to absorb the flavours of the barrel and mature slowly. The strong coffee/chocolate flavours work wonderfully with the plum and raisin qualities from the Shiraz. The body is full and rich, clinging to the glass and providing a sweet stickiness giving the hint that you’re sipping a wonderfully warming port.
Using quality ingredients from the local area, and around the world, Five Barrel Brewing handcraft 600L batches of quality craft beers on site in Wollongong, NSW. Their beers are never filtered or pasteurised, so store them cool and drink them fresh!
