Barrel Aged Imperial Korova, Gnarly Barley Brewing
Judges Ratings 

We took Imperial Korova, which is a bigger, bolder version of our favorite Baltic Oatmeal Porter, and aged it in barrels for one year. Annually brewed in late fall for winter consumption, this higher alcohol version boasts a 9% alcohol by volume without getting too boozy. The malts provide flavors of chocolate and coffee, but Imperial adds notes of caramel, plum and molasses and the barrel aging process adds notes of vanilla and bourbon.
