Boatrocker Ramjet Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout 2018 330ml
Aged in freshly emptied whisky barrels from our friends at Starward Whisky Distillery in Port Melbourne, Ramjet 2018 is a big beer with great malt complexity. Sitting at 13.4% the whisky character shines through very nicely. Behind that are the great dark chocolate and coffee notes fom the malt and a solid presence of the ex red wine barrels used to age the whisky and the beer. Overall, the beer is well balanced but on the boozy side. As this beer ages, further integration of the flavours will occur.
Stored upright in a cool, dark place, Ramjet 2018 will reward careful cellaring of at least 5 years. Over time, the whisky will become less prominent and the barrel type more pronounced–the end result being just sublime.
