Brandy Barrel Mexicake

ABV:
11.6
Hops:
Columbus
Taste:
Fruitcake, Cinnamon, Nutmeg

It's been talked about in hushed tones and whispers for a while now, but it's finally here.


For the last 7 months, we've been barrel aging and bottle conditioning our incredibly well-loved Mexicake imperial stout. It's something a lot of people asked about, and something that to us made a lot of sense. However, we've aged in not one but two different barrel types; Bourbon, and Brandy.


Brandy Barrel brings a different profile to Mexicake, showing the difference barrel type can make. On the nose, the oak character is a lot softer, with the brandy bringing out more fruitcake like flavours and a sweeter cinnamon aroma. The dried fruit sweetness of that fruitcake aroma is present on the palate too, highlighting spice notes like cinnamon, nutmeg, and a touch of vanilla. The brandy barrel flavour mingles well with the chocolate and spices added to Mexicake, and the bottle conditioning has given it a big velvety body. 


A beautiful beer in its own right, it's incredibly limited so don't wait if you want to try it...
