Brewer: Wolf of the Willows
Style: Imperial Smoke Porter
Strength: 12.8% ABV
Locality: Mordialloc, VIC
Description: This Imperial Smoke Porter was aged in 100L Lark barrels for an average of an average of 9 months and is weighing in at a hefty 12.8%. The result is an Imperial Smoke Porter rich with whisky barrel aged flavours of vanilla, oak, peat, dark chocolate, molasses, truffles and espresso.
The Lark whisky barrels were individually hand selected based on their unique sensory characteristics. The brewers and distillers tried samples from countless Lark whisky barrels, discussing which casks would work best for the beer aging process. Once selected, they were emptied of the whisky and shipped directly across to the brewery and filled within 7 days with an Imperial version of the Johnny Smoked Porter.
