Beer Baroness Double Danger, an Imperial Hoppy Red Ale (7.9%abv) is the first from their upcoming range of barrel-aged limited releases. Lady Danger (one of the all-time classics from the Christchurch brewery) serves as the platform for this imperial red ale, further embellished by blending in a portion which has aged for over a year in barrel. Aromas of dried stone fruit and sumptuously rich roasted malt are counterbalanced by just a thread of vanilla and tart barrel funk.  That hint of barrel-borne brett, along with notes of char and oak tannin serve to dry an otherwise rich and heavily malt driven palate as it meanders into a long and complex finish. Keep an eye out for this and other barrel aged treats from the team at Beer Baroness soon.
