Imperial Stout 2018 Vintage – Oak Aged

Imperial Stout 2018 Vintage – Oak Aged

“Lovingly aged for 18 months!”

We have been at the forefront of the revival of classic English ale styles for nearly 40 years and this beer, aged for 18 months, embodies so much of what we enjoy about brewing!

Brewed early in  2017, we have lovingly matured this vintage stout on a bed of winter spices for over 12 months. The beer was then given a further 6 months maturation in our oak casks, allowing the oak to lend its unique character to the stout including hints of vanilla and bourbon.

What better way to say “Cheers!” to 2018, than with a glass of our vintage oak aged stout as we sail onwards into 2019?
