Cabernet Barrel-Aged Nikolai Vorlauf
About Cabernet Barrel-Aged Nikolai Vorlauf
We brewed this Nikolai Vorlauf Imperial Stout to be big, bold and strong, like a bear-hugging Russian wrestler. A thick body using oats and lactose is complimented by plenty of complex chocolate, cocoa, and caramel undertones. This variant is aged in luscious, cabernet barrels for months to add vinous oak and dark fruit complexity.
