A year ago we decided to take our hyper popular chocolate, vanilla milk stout Tonkoko and ramp it up to monolithic proportions for the Tryanuary scheme. We weren’t interested in doing anything small, we wanted to go big and so the 10.6% brute Empress Tonkoko was born. Bigger, stronger and more intense than even our awesome Imperial Tonkoko, this would be a phenom but we didn’t stop there.
No, we went further. We purchased 6 barrels from some of the most renowned bourbon distillers in the USA and went ahead with filling them with this first batch of Empress Tonkoko to create a very special wood aged version. This would be something to behold.
A year has passed, and the Jack Daniel’s, Buffalo Trace and Wild Turkey barrels have imparted their unique flavour profile into this stunning brew, enriching it and adding even more body. Subtle smoky notes and even more butterscotch character comes through and each individual bourbon aged variety tastes completely unique.
