Imperial Stout – 10% – Bottle
Directly inspired by food, our head brewer Brett was blown away by a dish serving caramelised miso butter in our restaurant at Wild Beer Jessop House. Instantly he wanted to recreate this flavours in a beer.
An imperial stout was brewed with lactose, sea salt, caramelised miso paste and tonka beans, this is a whole new take on ‘a decadent stout’. A direct descendant, or rather an older relative, of our salted caramel chocolate stout Millionaire. Intense and velvety the umami character shines through in Billionaire where salinity and a lactose body is matched by the intense umami on the miso paste.
With a long, warming bear hug of a finish this is a beer to be sipped and savoured.
The vanilla pods add something a little special to the character of the beer. Helping produce an elegant, creamy, soothing confection of aromas and flavours. It’s like a rich dessert in a glass.
