What better way to celebrate out 10th Birthday than with a monster of a beer. Building upon our incredibly popular Giblin Stout from a few years ago, we upped the anti by throwing a stack more malt into the bill, cold steeped a massive amount of Roast Barley malt to extract colour & flavour, without bitterness, & forcibly acquired 4 recently emptied Portuguese Port barrels in which to occupy for 12 months.
The result is a viscous delight that takes palates back a thousand years in the form of an Imperial Stout. Upon pouring this dark monster, the delicate aromas of an unmistakable port character send waves of delight across the nostril sensoria. As temperatures rise, complexity continues to mature with notes of decadent dark chocolate, dark cocoa, and sun-dried sultanas, with hints of rich plum, toffee brandy & a sweet chocolate tart flavor enveloping like a mist of delight. Giblin X is our barrel aged Imperial Stout that is akin to a silent assassin carrying out its’ hostile orders - silent but deadly - albeit with a celebratory footnote, with this being our liquid birthday cake after 10 years in the industry.
A perfect post-dinner delight, pair with a rich chocolate dessert, or treat as a winter warmer on its own.
