Narwhal Barrel Aged Imperial StoutMay 26, 2023
This Islay barrel aged stout comes from Finnish brewing company Hiisi, based in Jyväskylä. Actually this beer is already a great selection as is, if you like imperial stouts.
But after it’s gotten the Islay barrel aging, it turns into a masterpiece. Apparently there’s Ardbeg and Laphroaig barrels involved.
Beer type: Imperial Stout
Nose: Holy Bouncy Boiler Plate, there’s some smoke! Rarely do I detect it with smoke whisky barrel aged beers, but this one definitely has it. Thick, roasted and malty.
Taste: Palate has more richness than nose. Combination of toasted and sweet notes but the sweetness stays more laid back. Licorice, dark chocolate, syrup and tar.
Good job Hiisi and Jyväskylä! 10 Amazing stout, no wonder this one’s four time Finnish Champion! Brewery: HIISI Brewing Company Ltd
