The Brother Sean 2017—tasting notes
The Brother Sean by Anspach & Hobday is the 2017 version of their stout fermented with Belgian yeast. Aroma and taste has lots of malts, toffee, roastiness and yeasty notes, and a dry and fruity finish with a yeasty aftertaste.
Imperial Stout is a dark beer, ranging from dark brown to pitch black, and a well-formed head. Aroma and flavour tend to be rich and complex, with presence of roasty malts or dried fruits and touches of coffee, caramel or chocolate. Hop flavour can be from medium to high. Imperial stout is a good choice for barrel-aging, making the aromas and flavours more balanced and smooth.
