Magic Rock x De Molen - Barrel-Aged De Molé Mexican Imperial Stout
Barrel-Aged Mexican Imperial Stout, collaboration between Magic Rock and De Molen.
A double mashed Bourbon Barrel Aged Mexican Molé-inspired Imperial Stout brewed in collaboration between Magic Rock and Brouwerij de Molen. Oats, malts, barley and toasted pumpkin seeds were used in the mash to give a complex base of flavours. A blend of Chipotle, Ancho, Mulato and Pasilla chilies was used to give a nice fruity acidity along with a delicate touch of heat.
True to the Molé recipe, they 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.
This bourbon barrel aged version adds additional vanilla depth to this wonderful Imperial stout.
