Pirate Life Limeburners Whisky Barrel Aged Stout 2018 (1 Bottle Limit)
NOTE: Limit of 1 per customer. Please do not order more as you will only be sent this amount.
Brewery: Pirate Life
Style: Imperial/Double Stout
Format: 750ml Bottle
A beer which is layered with many years of complexity, first from the whisky and then from the stout. Dark and thick in the glass the aroma has hints of chocolate, vanilla and a touch of coffee. The barrel's charred American oak gives the nose a subtle hint of campfire and roasted marshmallow. The palate is silky and sweet, vanilla is here again along with chocolate and honeycomb. This is followed by wisps of fine malt whisky, a touch of acidity, subtle unami and lingering, moreish finish. You want that next sip and it's easier than you would think to watch the whole bottle disappear in front of you as you enjoy the slow evolution in taste and aroma while it slowly warms in the glass.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
The best of both worlds
If you appreciate a whiskey and enjoy a stout then this beer brings you the best of both worlds.
Best served shared in small glasses in front of the fire in the depths of winter, this beer is everything you expect of a stout and whiskey without being overpowering and pure alcohol.
If the overnight temperature is over 2 degrees then save it for next winter.
