Weiherer Zapfenduster Hofzfassgelagert

Weiherer is a great brewery with both traditional and craft beer offerings. This oak barrel aged version of their already gorgeous Imperial Stout is a majestic example of how barrel aging can work. It’s a richly malty contemplative brew with a complex mix of oak, dried fruit, chocolate and coffee. It sounds like an odd combination but the flavors meld beautifully. The lingering finish is quite dry for 7.8% with a pleasant bitterness which makes it incredibly drinkable.
