We tasted Noctis a few weeks ago, and its coming right along! Like all barrel aged beers, the barrels decide when the beer is at its optimal taste, Wait too long and the beer may taste a little over charred, oaky, or draw to many tannins out of the wood. Don’t wait enough, and you wont experience the full extraction of all the sweet vanilla, maple, caramel and of corse bourbon flavors that come from the barrels.
Its a painful process to wait on the beer so long, but trust us its well worth it! As t looks now Noctis Russian Imperial Stout should be ready to package in July!
Still want to get your hands on some?
