Release 2 Imperial Porter | 700ml

‘Imperial Porter’ is a phrase borrowed from Mornington Peninsula Brewery. In 2019, Mornington Peninsula Brewery aged a batch of their incredible Russian ‘Imperial’ Stout in one of our ex 900 Standard whisky barrels. So intense was the flavour, they needed to ‘cut the beer’ and decided to use ‘Porter’ rather than Stout. The result was the first ‘Imperial Porter’ and their exact words were – “that’s the best beer we’ve ever made”.

Our second Cask Expression reflects the finishing of our 900 Standard in 50% Russian Imperial Stout and 50% Porter barrels. The Porter introduces heavy coffee and chocolate characteristics, whilst the boldness of the Stout introduces liquorice, dark fruits and brown malts. Combined, they lift the aromas, morph into dark sweetness and carry the spirit off into deep dreams.
