Big Shed Dr Orders Dr Shedlove 2016 Vintage 330ml
Brewery: Big Shed
Style: Imperial/Double Stout
Format: 330ml Bottle
Last year was the first release of Dr Shedlove, an imperial stout saison crated by Doctors Orders and Big Shed Brewing. The aim was for the beer to be annual tradition, with a different root vegetable used each year.
For 2016 yam and taro are the feature with more than 250kg peeled, cut and mashed in this 9 percent ABV beer. It is a Belgian imperial yam and taro stout with a variety of dark specialty malts, as well as Columbus, Magnum and Hallertau hops and, oak chips.
Expect a pitch black beer with a slight reddish hue when held to the light. You'll find a sweetness and a smooth balanced aftertaste with hints of raisins and currants present from the use of a Belgian yeast.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Rich smooth dark malts. Hints of whisky and drying oak. Subtle chocolate. The yams(sweet potatoe) must provide the thickened smoothness. Great linger.
