Barrel Aged Imperial Stout | 330ml | ABV 11.2% | Melbourne, Australia
Boatrocker's Ramjet Starward whisky barrel aged imperial stout is a household name in Australia and the rest of the beer geek world. It’s a big luscious beast of a beer, with lovely whisky notes, and delicious aromas and flavours of dark chocolate, coffee, and malt.
Inspired by some classic versions of bourbon barrel aged coffee beers, this is a uniquely Australian take, using the wonderful whisky barrels of local distillery Starward. The natural coffee character present in Ramjet is enhanced by infusing the beer with whole dark roast coffee beans.
