Origin Of Darkness: Imperial Stout | Collective Arts Brewing x GP
An Imperial Stout aged in oak barrels and finished in tawny port barrels with New Zealand Pinot Noir, South Pacific Vanilla & New Zealand Cacao.
As our good friends at Collective Arts put it
"We created this Imperial Stout to showcase the finest ingredients from the South Pacific. Adding New Zealand Pinot Noir skins to the finished Imperial Stout, then ageing the brew on neutral oak to mimic traditional wine conditioning, imparting soft flavours of oak & vanilla.
We then transferred the brew to finish in Tawny Port barrels, developing distinct dark fruit and nutty character. And finally, adding cacao nibs from New Zealand and vanilla beans from the South Pacific, to marry the flavours."
This one is special.
