Bruny Island Metric Stout 2019

Style
Post-Imperial Stout
ABV
12.3%

Just as they like to focus on brewing with Tasmanian ingredients, Bruny Island are big on brewing for Tasmania’s weather too. In the warmer months, as the days are longer, saisons regularly waltz across the small island and, when winter comes along, it’s time for beers to cut through the chill.

The most warming beer from the brewery is Metric Stout – a “Post-Imperial” annual release. The 2019 vintage sits at 12.3 percent ABV, is hopped with Cascade and has spent 32 weeks in Tasmanian whisky barrels. As in previous years, Metric possesses big roasted notes, which are joined by a molasses and burnt sugar sweetness, plus rich plum and raisins. Those barrels hang over the beer too, with whisky floating across the beer’s silky smooth mouthfeel.

A Brewer’s Reserve is also available with added morello cherries but there’s only 200 of those…
