3 Minutes to Midnight

Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout
10.0% ALC./VOL.

Based on our award-winning recipe that debuted at Cask Days 2012, this smooth elixir is your partner in crime. In second-use cognac barrels (previously housing Bring Out Your Dead), this rich and complex imperial stout gains a complexity that can only come with age, aided by the addition of cherries, raspberries, and cocoa nibs. Deep roasted flavours hint at all the black coffee and dark chocolate you could ever want, and the cherries create a complimentary tartness that marries the fruit and malt perfectly.

This special edition release of 3 Minutes includes raspberries, which contribute rich, black forest cake aromatics, and extra fruit flavour on the palate.

What it smells like, what it tastes like: Kills it in the flavour and aroma departments. Smoke, red berry, and roasted malts on the nose with cherry, raspberry, oak, port, and rich chocolate cake on the palate.
