About The Beer
Big, bold and emerging from the deep dark abyss, these beers will take no prisoners so be prepared!
It features 6 of our favourite Imperial Stouts, Barleywines, Bocks and other big beers. Including new releases and some of our staff absolute favourite beers.
1. Rogue Dead Guy Ale 473ml Can 6.8%
Bold and complex maibock-style ale that has been introducing countless beer drinkers to craft beer the world for over 25 years. Chock full of rich caramel malts and herbal hop nuances tied together with a balanced hop bitterness, this guy is still as drinkable as ever.
2. Stone Brewing Arrogant Bastard Ale 470ml Can 7.2%
This is an aggressive ale. You probably won't like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to be able to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth. We would suggest that you stick to safer and more familiar territory, maybe something with a multi-million dollar ad campaign aimed at convincing you it's made in a little brewery, or one that implies that their tasteless fizzy yellow beverage will give you more sex appeal. Perhaps you think multi-million dollar ad campaigns make things taste better. Perhaps you're mouthing your words as you read this. At Stone Brewing, we believe that pandering to the lowest common denominator represents the height of tyranny - a virtual form of keeping the consumer barefoot and stupid. Brought forth upon an unsuspecting public in 1997, Arrogant Bastard Ale openly challenged the tyrannical overlords who were brazenly attempting to keep Americans chained in the shackles of poor taste. As the progenitor of its style, Arrogant Bastard Ale has reveled in its unprecedented and uncompromising celebration of intensity. There have been many nods to Arrogant Bastard Ale, …even outright attempts to copy it…, but only one can ever embody the true nature of liquid Arrogance! Rated 99 out of 100 on Ratebeer.com
3. Schneider Weisse Aventinus (Tap 6) 500ml Bottle 8.2%
For golden moments by the fireplace: "Mein Aventinus" - the wholehearted, dark ruby coloured wheat beer, intensive and fiery, warming, well-balanced and tender. Bavaria's oldest wheat "Doppelbock" - brewed since 1907! Its sturdy body in combination with its sweet malty aroma is an invitation to profound indulgence - an ingenious blend with a strong body. Perfectly matches rustic dishes, dark roasts and sweet desserts. Rated 100 out of 100 on Ratebeer.com
4. New England Whiskey Barrel Aged Imperial Stout 330ml Bottle 8.9%
Aged in Tasmanian whisky barrels for 6 months. This full bodied stout has classic barrel aromas of oak and vanilla before a luscious body of whisky and chocolate.
5. Hawkers BBA Barleywine 2021 440ml Can 12.9%
Rounded and polished by months of rest in ex-bourbon barrels, this barleywine is an exemplary amalgamation between a rich malt profile and complex barrel characters.
6. Dainton Darklord Imperial Stout 10%
Deliciously smooth, silky and rich without having to cut your hand off to get it. Darklord Imperial Stout is 440ml of pure liquid indulgence. Sometimes it's good to be bad.
