ANTWERP, what we call the capital of Flanders! Is a massive Russian Imperial Stout, made with tons of speciality malts from Mouterij Dingemans. We dry spiced this beer with fresh roasted coffeebeans from Crossroast, a small coffee roastery from Antwerp. After that we dry spiced it again with Cacaobeans, Vanillabeans and some fresh Cinnamon. The result is a very complex, roasty imperial stout with lots of tones of chocolate, coffee, toffee, caramel, vanilla and a little spicyness from the cinnamon.
We rested this beer for 6 months on Buffalo Trace Bourbon barrels. Enjoy!
