Jule Mælk Cognac Edition—tasting notes
Jule Mælk Cognac Edition is an Imperial Porter by To Øl, brewed with Sorachi Ace, Tettnanger and Tomahawk hops. It is the second edition of their Christmas beer and also the strongest beer so far by To Øl. It has lots of chocolate and cognac in the nose, with hints of milk, oats and vanilla. In palate is sweet with some slight bitterness with caramel, coffee and chocolate notes and some woody hints. Finish is sweet and boozy.
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.
