Hooglander Barrel Aged RIS #08 from the Dutch Hooglander from Aarle-Rixtel in the Dutch North Brabant, brewed in the Brouwschuur in Weert.
As the number suggests, indeed the eighth version of this barrel-aged Russian Imperial Stout!
This time matured for 365 days (or 1 year) in Het Turriff (Deanston Distillery) cask from the Highlands of Scotland.
The recognizable taste of roasted malts and the taste of dark chocolate.
The whiskey sits well in it and adds a nice flavor to the whole.
Even surpasses the RIS a bit.
Slightly sweet and slightly woody.
