Barrel aged beers have been a fast developing trend both in the USA and recently Poland. The ageing process, during which the whole range of chemical and physical changes take place, allows Rye RIS aromas and flavours to develop fully. The main goal of barrel ageing is to develop vanilla, caramel and oak wood flavours. On top of it, beer takes over flavours of the spirits that used to age in the very same barrel before. In case of our beer, it is American Bourbon. The final effect is highly concentrated beer as water evaporates faster from the barrel in comparison to other compounds. In addition, more oxidised beer means even richer aromas of prunes and cherries.
Russian Imperial Stout is a style for these beer enthusiasts who are ready for new experiences. This full flavoured beer was brewed as early as at the turn of 18th and beginning of the 19th century in London. This classic style has been redefined by adding coffee, chocolate, caramel and velvety rye malts which bring to mind luxurious pralines. The beer is very hazy. There is an incredible amount of ingredients used: huge amounts of malts that account for high extract and loads of hops to balance the full malty flavour. Another typical feature is the long fermenting and ageing process to allow the beer to age and balance its rich flavour.
Browar Stu Mostów has redefined this classic style by adding rye malts, which account for the beer’s even greater mouthfeel and thickness. As a result, the exquisite flavour and aroma last longer. The chocolate and coffee tones with a subtle touch of caramel and high contents of alcohol bring to mind luxurious pralines whereas the long ageing process accounts for the prune aroma. Despite the exquisite mix of produced sensations, WRCLW Rye RIS is harmonious and velvety. It’s a perfect beer to sip on long wintery nights.
