Imperial Stout with Cinnamon, Vanilla, and Toasted Almond
Barrel-Aged Danish Gentleman
Say Kanelsnegle five times fast! These mouth-watering cinnamon rolls can be found all over Denmark, the home country of our close friend Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø of EvilTwin Brewing. Back in the spring of 2019, Jeppe joined us to brew an imperial stout inspired by this treat, featuring dark brown sugar, Vietnamese cinnamon, Madagascar vanilla beans, and toasted almond. After enjoying a 17-month slumber in freshly-emptied bourbon barrels, Barrel-Aged Danish Gentleman is ready for your enjoyment.
Elegant in every way, this pastry-inspired imperial stout presents a silky pitch black. Swirling the glass not only leaves a coating, toffee-colored veneer, but also releases rich confectionary aromas of cassia bark, warm vanilla icing, caramelized brown sugar, and toasted almond. Upon the first sip, Barrel-Aged Danish Gentlemen shows its ample depth, unveiling notes of warm brown sugar, baker's chocolate, fresh-toated oak, and a gentle warming bourbon character. Medium-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel, a decadent finish lingers pleasantly after each sip.
