LONG, DARK VOYAGE TO URANUS WHISKEY BARREL-AGED EDITION BY SAWDUST CITY BREWING CO.

  • STYLE: Russian Imperial Stout
  • ABV:9%
  • COUNTRY: Canada
  • REGION: Gravenhurst, ON
  • BREWERY: Sawdust City Brewing Co.

This is the ‘sequel’ to Long, Dark Voyage to Uranus which has been aged in a whiskey barrel.  It’s in limited quantity on tap at Woolwich Arrow. (Long gone!)

Appearance | Pitch black with a dark brown head that disappeared quickly after being poured.

Smell | Sharp notes of whiskey, peat, and minimal notes of vanilla.

Taste | Whiskey, burnt sugar, dark chocolate, earth, roasted malts, smoke, hops, and peat.

Aftertaste | Heavy notes of whiskey, peat, and smoke. Bitterness sets in shortly after finishing.

Overall | As one would expect from something inspired by whiskey, it hits you like a punch in the face.  While it is an initial shock to the palate,  this transforms into a smooth drink with a bitter aftertaste.  It is best served at room temperature; it gets easier to drink as it becomes warmer.  The sweet taste of coffee and dark chocolate offsets the high ABV, making it dangerously enjoyable.

Label
“My god, it’s full of…whiskey.”

4 Pints / 5 Pints
