Mountain Goat Barrel Breed Imperial Stout 2018

Mountain Goat (Asahi)

Released July 20th, 2018

The wintry leg of Mountain Goat's Barrel Breed trilogy is back for 2018. As with this year's Barley Wine, the beer was aged in a number of ex Tennessee whiskey barrels before the contents of the best nine were blended to create the 9.3 percent ABV beer. As you'd expect with such a beer, there's a lengthy roll call of malts in the mix but, rather more intriguingly, there's also the appearance of a hop variety we've not seen in a local beer before (at least not knowingly). It goes by the snappy title of "American Dwarf Hop Association Experimental #529" and a little flitting around the web suggests it lends a beer scents of coconut, lemon, tea and mint.

Quite how much of that you're expected to pick up when there's so much else at play is a moot point, but what you can be sure of is a mouth-coating doona of a beer, one stuffed with dark fruits, rich chocolate, toffee, hints of the barrels' past inhabitant and just a hint of drying roast. Pull up a comfy chair, put on some choice tunes and slip inside.
