Cu Bocan Creation #1: Black Isle Brewery Imperial Stout & Bacalhôa Moscatel de Setúbal Wine Casks.
A brand new presentation and limited release Cu Bocan.
In the first release of The Creations series we have an unusually creative collaboration of Black Isle Brewery Imperial Stout and Bacalhôa Moscatel de Setúbal Wine Casks, this intriguing mix marries the best bits of its wine and beer counterparts; sweet and buttery with hints of orange marmalade and espresso.
Nose – Immediately sweet from the influence Bacalhôa Moscatel De Setúbal wine cask. Buttery aromas, with hints of orange marmalade, give way to an array of herbal notes of eucalyptus and burning heather. Subtle tones of leather and tobacco are imparted by the Black Isle Brewery Imperial Stout casks.
Taste - The sweet flavours, of sun dried fruits and butter croissants, are perfectly balanced, with hints of campfire smoke which reveals red berries and a bitterness in the guise of espresso and dark chocolate.
Finish - A waxy mouthfeel, which allows the campfire smoke and espresso to linger.
