RACK ‘EM UP Series: #8 Black Ball Metric Stout aged in Jameson whiskey barrels
ABV 11.2% 24x440ml cans
Eight Degrees is turning eight this year. To celebrate eight years of brewing, we are producing eight exciting and innov8ing beers throughout 2019. These eight unique beers will form part of our exciting and colourful RACK EM’ UP series.
Eight Years. Eight Beers. Eight Collabs.
The culmination of our RACK ‘EM UP Series, this is a big bold stout. We rammed the mash tun as full as we could with an excess of dark complex malts, added extra char for a slightly sinister twist and then aged everything in Jameson whiskey barrels from our friends in Midleton.
There’s a touch of sweet vanilla in there from the oak and lots of cocoa and dark chocolate to combine with smooth, spicy whiskey notes. Deep, dark, rich and rewarding, celebrate sinking a Black Ball this winter.
