WINEY BASTARD

Pinot Noir Barrel-aged Imperial Stout

10% ABV | 70 IBU

Available: Winter

While beers were historically stored in wooden barrels, the aging of beers in barrels which have held other types of alcohol is relatively new. Wineries generally only use a barrel three times, but we love playing with them for years to come, pulling increasingly complex flavours and aromas from them year-after-year. Pinot Noir barrels add more fruit and floral tannins to an already complex Imperial Stout. Coffee and cocoa blend with red grapes, oak and vanilla in this winter warmer.
