Winter Bänger (abv 12,5%) is an Imperial Stout inspired by British Christmas cake, brewed with Ceylon cinnamon, nutmeg and aged on brandy-soaked raisins.
It is a jet black beer covered with a dark brown head, in which aroma fresh toasted chestnuts, dried figs and raisins come forward first, followed by cinnamon and sweet chocolate orange.
Taste wise, an overload of rich treacle and nutmeg mixed with spicy brandy and marzipan stand out first, before rich plum jam and dark baked raisins come through, lingering as the glass warms. After that sweet malt and mixed spice jump out, followed by golden toasted oats and just a hint of dark fruits.
