The distilling side of their business might not be far enough along for Noodledoof to have released their first whisky at time of writing (although such things are on the way). But for by far their biggest beer to date, they did enlist the help of near neighbours at Timboon Distillery for this beer, a 13 percent ABV whisky barrel-aged stout topped off with cherries from Tower Hill.
Low carbonation aids its somewhat viscous passage across your palate, as dark cherries and chocolate – or Black Forest gateaux if you prefer – are unveiled. There's a distinct booze-enhanced stickiness, while the whisky character feels like its floating through a thick, thick choc-cherry syrup.
A hearty sipper to be enjoyed with mates late of an evening.
