Red Hill Imperial Stout (2012) - Red Hill Brewery


Red Hill Imperial Stout (2012)

Does anything need to be said about this beer? The most eagerly anticipated of the Mornington Peninsula brewery’s seasonal range and now brewed in larger amounts to try and meet demand (they never will!) is a beer that has been warming the cockles and exciting the taste buds of Aussie craft beer lovers for years and never lets you down. It’s probably one of the most cellared beers in Oz too. If we can say anything about this year’s, it’s that we had some on tap at the Terminus and figured it would need a few minutes to warm up to optimal temperature. Yet there was no need to wait, as the thick oily body and its deeply brown head were doing just what you’d want from the off, with molasses, sweet liquorice and more among the typically roasty stout characters. Grab some before it’s gone for another year.
