夜の帳 (Veil of Darkness)

1 bar limited to 1x kegs max

'Yoru no Tobari' is our second release of 2017 and is our first Imperial Stout. Brewing a beer this big pushed our brewing equipment to the limits, and after 10 days of fermentation and nearly two months of maturation, it is finally ready. Rich flavours of cacao, coffee, and licorice are complemented by a thick and roasty body that leaves a complex and lingering aftertaste. All of this flavour hides the 8% ABV dangerously well, meaning we are extremely pleased with the result. We are also pleased that we had the patience to age the beer as long as we did, allowing the deep and complex flavours to blend. Trust us...it wasn't easy to have all that beer in the tank and not drink it!

Naming: At the end of a busy day's work, there's nothing more satisfying than finishing it off with a hard earned beer. While in the summer it might be all well and satisfying to throw back something cold, refreshing and thirst quenching, at this time of year it might be more fitting to relax with something a little less cold, and with a bit more body to go with it. Yoru no Tobari ("yoru" meaning night, and "tobari" meaning veil or mantle) refers to that feeling after getting back home on the cold of a winter's night. Once settling down into the warmth of your living room chair, we feel this is a beer to relax and unwind with on such a late, dark and icy evening.
