Wayward Brewing Co.
9.4% Barrel Aged Imperial Stout matured in ex-Jack Daniels barrels for six months. Technically the second release of this beer, with the previous being bottled 330ml format in TINY quantities and sold only via the cellar bar. Named by the bar crew in honour of the passing of a regular’s beloved pet rabbit, Balthazar, who was a regular visitor to the brewery.
This bold Imperial Stout offers up intensely layered aromatics of caramel, coffee, chocolate and burnt toffee, intertwined perfectly with subtle whiskey and vanilla notes courtesy of six months maturation in ex-Jack Daniels barrels. On the palate expect a rich, complex and mouth filling beer with flavours of coffee and cacao carrying all the way through to the finely balanced, lingering finish. Named in honour of Balthazar; the coolest rabbit there ever was.
