BA De MoleBourbon Barrel Aged Mexican Mole Imperial Stout
A double mashed Bourbon Barrel Aged Mexican Mole inspired Imperial Stout brewed in collaboration with our friends from Brouwerij de Molen. Oats, malts, barley and toasted pumpkin seeds were used in the mash to give a complex base of flavours. We then used a blend of Chipotle, Ancho, Mulato and Pasilla chilies to give a nice fruity acidity along with a delicate touch of heat.
True to the Molé recipe, we also added cacao nibs, coriander seed, cinnamon sticks and a little cumin, giving depth and different layers of flavour, that develop as the beer warms. Smoky, chocolatey and roasty on the nose, with a great complexity of tastes.
The bourbon barrel ageing adds additional vanilla depth to this wonderful Imperial stout . . .
