Mighty Imperial Ale

Style: 
Strong Ale
Abv: 
11%

My idea of a strong ale was brewed with loads of malt, hops, jaggery and a touch of manuka smoke.

 

It was fermented with a clean ale yeast to let the ingredients speak for themselves without getting interrupted by too many esters.

 

After all that it was aged for 5 months on American oak, then refermented in the bottle.
